JUNEAU- A Washington state man is scheduled to be sentenced next week in the death of a Juneau woman last year.
   
Jacob Andrew Mommer was convicted earlier this month of first-degree murder and second-degree assault in the January 2012 death of Ashton Ericka-Marie Reyes.
   
Mommer is scheduled to be sentenced May 31.
   
Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the King County prosecutor's office, says Mommer could face up to about 36 years in prison.
   
Prosecutors said a Seattle Police investigation found that Reyes and her boyfriend had arranged to sell the suspects marijuana, but were robbed and shot during the drug deal. The boyfriend survived.
