HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- An Ohio woman is headed to federal prison for selling heroin and cocaine in Huntington.

Christina Nease, 33, of South Point, Ohio, was sentenced Monday to two years in federal prison.

In July, she pleaded guilty to heroin distribution, admitting that she conspired with others to distribute heroin in and around Huntington.

In February, an undercover DEA agent set up a buy from Nease. She was pulled over on her way and had 24 grams of heroin on her.

She also admitted to selling cocaine to a DEA agent for $200 and to selling heroin to an agent for $1400 one time and $1700 another time.

The Drug Enforcement Administration and the Huntington Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph F. Adams handled the prosecution. The sentence was imposed by United States District Judge Robert C. Chambers.
