Two Moundsville women were sentenced in federal court on Friday for their roles in trafficking prescription painkillers in the Ohio Valley.

Abigail Martinez, 33, and Keturah Keyser, 30, both of Moundsville, repeatedly sold hydrocodone near public housing authority facilities.

According to United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld II, both sold hydrocodone in July 2014 near Golden Towers, a public housing authority in Moundsville, West Virginia.

Martinez and Keyser each pled guilty in June 2015 to one count of “Aiding and Abetting Distribution of Hydrocodone within 1,000 feet of a Protected Location.”

Keyser was sentenced to four months in prison and Martinez was sentenced to three years of probation.
