BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Prosecutors say a second Baton Rouge man has been sentenced to more than 22 years in federal prison for his role in a home-invasion plot aimed at stealing cocaine and killing anyone who stood in the way.

The Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1kMZps8 ) U.S. District Judge Shelly Dick sentenced 35-year-old Christopher L. Brown to the 270-month term on Wednesday after he pleaded guilty in January to conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine, possessing a firearm during a drug trafficking crime, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Dick handed Brown’s co-defendant - 28-year-old Chris E. “Spank” Williams of Baton Rouge - the same 270-month sentence in April.
