PHOENIX (AP) - A Maricopa couple has been sentenced to federal prison for selling methamphetamine on the Ak-Chin Indian Community south of Phoenix.

Federal prosecutors say 31-year-old Stephanie Amanda Aviles received an eight-year prison term while her 37-year-old husband got a six-year sentence.

Aviles and Verduzco-Caro had previously pleaded guilty to possession with the intent to distribute a mixture or substance containing methamphetamine.

Prosecutors say the couple sold meth to undercover officers on and near the Ak-Chin Indian Community between August 2014 and April 2015.

Neither Aviles nor Verduzco-Caro is a member of the tribes that live on the community.
