Thirty-one-year-old Christopher T. Gyorko entered the plea in federal court in Wheeling this week to a heroin distribution charge.

Federal prosecutor say Gyorko orchestrated shipments into Ohio and Marshall counties and in eastern Ohio for redistribution and sale.

Gyorko faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine at his sentencing.

Thirteen others also were charged in either state or federal court as part of the distribution operation.
