EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- A Coburg man has been sentenced to almost six years in prison for his role in a botched robbery that left his accomplice dead.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/Y1V9aD ) that 39-year-old Darin George Dubouch was sentenced Thursday following his conviction on robbery and burglary charges.

Dubouch was arrested in February after he and Shawn Connelly forced their way into the home of a Eugene heroin dealer.

The dealer surprised the intruders when he grabbed a handgun from underneath a pillow, fatally shooting Connelly and firing several more rounds toward Dubouch.

Lane County Deputy District Attorney Chris Parosa says Dubouch escaped the home with the dealer's wallet and 19 grams of heroin.

Prosecutors ruled that the dealer acted in self-defense.
