Missouri couple sentenced in methamphetamine case
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a Missouri couple to prison time for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine in Newton and Jasper counties.
A federal attorney said Monday that 53-year-old Gregory Holcomb and 49-year-old Malinda Willis were sentenced last week. Holcomb received 20 years without parole and Willis got six years without parole.
They pleaded guilty in April to conspiracy charges related to a 2011 drug bust. Authorities say Willis traded firearms for drugs. They seized 200 grams of meth from the couple's home.
