A man was sentenced Friday to 53 years to life in prison for fatally shooting his girlfriend after she refused to give him drugs.

The slaying occurred Feb. 8, 2007, as Anton Naimat, 21, argued with his live-in girlfriend, Nicole Villareal, in their bedroom in an Irvine apartment. When she refused to give him methamphetamine, Naimat shot Villareal in the head then fled the apartment with his father. Naimat was convicted of first-degree murder May 22.

His father, Tassawur Naimat, 53, was found guilty of being an accessory and is scheduled to be sentenced in July.
