HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Point Pleasant man will spend more than three years in prison for an investment scheme that cost victims more than $220,000.

Mark Anthony also must pay restitution.

The 40-year-old Anthony had pleaded guilty in November 2014 to mail fraud. He was sentenced on Monday to 37 months in prison.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says Anthony defrauded an elderly couple and at least three other victims. Anthony told the victims that he would invest their money in annuities and money market accounts. Instead, he spent the money for his own use.
