RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Two gang members convicted of racketeering and obstruction of justice charges in relation to a string of robberies and the 2014 abduction and slaying of an off-duty Waynesboro reserve police officer have been sentenced.

The News Leader of Staunton reports (https://bit.ly/2hghjNx ) that with Monday’s sentences, the government has nearly wrapped up its prosecution of the 10 people who faced charges in the death of 45-year-old Kevin Quick.

According to a statement from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, 34-year-old Anthony Darnell Stokes of Manassas was sentenced to 13 years and four months in federal prison, and 24-year-old Halisi Uhuru of Danville was sentenced to 12 years.

Quick was abducted by gang members at gunpoint and shot in the head after his captors obtained his ATM PIN code.
