3 cousins sentenced to life in prison in federal cocaine case

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Three Sikeston, Missouri men were sentenced Thursday to life behind bars in connection to a  federal cocaine conspiracy case.

The three cousins, 37-year-old Corey E. Turner, Sr, 41-year-old Antonio Turner and 37-year-old Antonio Turner, Jr. were all sentenced for the conspiracy charge and 360 months in prison on individual distribution and aiding and abetting the distribution of controlled substance charges.

The men had been previously found guilty of conspiracy to possess more than 5-kilograms of cocaine with the intent to distribute and other charges.

Fourteen co-conspirators had previously entered guilty pleas for their roles in the conspiracy. Some of the suppliers were in Mo., with most coming from Blytheville, Arkansas, according to the Department of Justice.
