TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Two members of a large-scale drug trafficking ring have pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute heroin in two Jersey Shore counties.

Federal prosecutors say 28-year-old Robert Ketcham, of Berkeley Township, and 41-year-old Kenneth Greenhow, of Asbury Park, pleaded guilty Monday to conspiring to distribute heroin. Both men now face up to 20 years in prison and $1 million fine when they are sentenced Aug. 18.

The men admitted that during 2013 and 2014, they conspired with leaders of the ring, known as the Britt-Young DTO, to distribute heroin in Monmouth and Ocean counties.

Prosecutors say that Ketcham and Greenhow were collectively responsible for distributing between 60 and 100 grams of heroin.
