BOCA RATON, Fla. - A former Florida Atlantic University soccer player was sentenced Thursday to 35 years in prison for the murder of a 19-year-old FAU student in December 2015.

Donovan Henry, 20, was found  guilty of second-degree murder with a firearm on Dec. 12 in the death of 19-year-old Nicholas Acosta.

Acosta was killed during a suspected drug deal at the University Park Apartments, a student-only apartment complex in Boca Baton.

One other man, Rodrick Woods, has pleaded guilty in the case and is scheduled to be sentenced in August.
