A Chapmanville husband and wife have been sentenced to federal prison for dealing methamphetamines.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said Rodney Wiley, 30, will spend 30 months in prison and his wife, Opal, 18 months, after admitting they sold methamphetamine to a confidential informant working with the U.S. 199 Drug Task Force in February.

The deal took place in January 2013 outside the Dollar General Store in Chapmanville. At the time of their arrest, the pair acknowledged that they had jointly sold methamphetamine for several months.

United States District Judge John T. Copenhaver Jr. sentenced the pair.
