New York (AP) New York's so-called “preppie killer” is headed back to prison.

Robert Chambers already served 15 years behind bars for strangling a woman in central park during what he said was rough sex.

He pleaded guilty today to selling drugs. The Manhattan district attorney's office says chambers is promised 19 years and four months in prison when he is sentenced on September 2nd.

Chambers and his girlfriend were charged with dealing cocaine out of their Manhattan apartment in 2007.

Chambers pleaded guilty in 1988 to manslaughter in the death of 18-year-old Jennifer Levin two years earlier. Stories portrayed him as a handsome, privileged, prep school youth gone bad.

He was released from prison in 2003.
