ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A New York man has been sentenced to life in prison plus 10 years for leading a violent drug trafficking organization that beat and killed workers seen as disloyal.

Pablo Plaza was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Rochester, where he was convicted of murder and drug conspiracy in July.

Prosecutors say he and his brother James Kendrick ran a drug business between 1993 and 2011 that was linked to three killings. One of the victims was found buried on the Cattaraugus (kat-uh-RAW’-gus) Indian Reservation in 1999.

Kendrick also was convicted of murder. Nine other defendants have been found guilty of drug and weapons crimes.
