A Virginia man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for providing a classmate with a morphine pill that contributed to her death. 

David Evers, 18, was sentenced on Wednesday. He received a 12-year sentence with five of those years suspended. 

Evers, a former senior at Centreville High School, pleaded guilty in September to giving 17-year-old Alexia Springer the pill at a party in Feb. 2015. Evers traded the pill to Springer in exchange for an Oxycodone pill. 

Springer took other pills and drank alcohol at the party before she went to sleep. She never woke up. Her death was ruled an accident.
