Maryland Man Sentenced To Life Imprisonment For Role In Contract Killing Of A Federal Witness And Two Others
WILLIAMSPORT - The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania announced that Kevin Murry, age 44, of Montour County, Pennsylvania, was indicted on March 10, 2022, by federal grand jury on two counts of distribution of methamphetamine.
According to United States John C. Gurganus, the indictment alleges that Murry distributed more than 50 grams of methamphetamine in Montour County on February 18 and March 7, 2022.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Alisan V. Martin is prosecuting the case.
This case is being prosecuted as part of the joint federal, state, and local Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN) Program, the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime. Through PSN, a broad spectrum of stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
The maximum penalty for each charge is up to 40 years of imprisonment, a life term of supervised release, and a fine of $5,000,000. A sentence following a finding of guilt is imposed by the Judge after consideration of the applicable federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
Indictments are only allegations. All persons charged are presumed to be innocent unless and until found guilty in court.
