Two Jamaican men involved in a triple homicide in Greece have been sentenced to serve four consecutive life terms plus five years in federal prison.

A third man involved in the murders is to be sentenced April 24th.

Federal prosecutors say Richard Anderson and Aston Johnson killed the men in a Greece apartment four years ago after a dispute over splitting up the proceeds of a marijuana-smuggling ring.

They say Anderson, Johnson and Andrew Wright believed they were being cheated by the victims, so they went to their apartment and killed them.

All three were caught and the drug ring was smashed after a major investigation involving federal agents plus police from Greece, Los Angeles and Arizona.
