SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri woman and Kansas City-area man have admitted they helped distribute large quantities of methamphetamine for more than a year.

Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Kenna Harmon, of Republic, and 41-year-old Carlos Tapia, of Lee’s Summit, pleaded guilty Thursday to drug conspiracy charges.

Prosecutors say Harmon and her husband, Daniel Harmon, led the conspiracy, which distributed meth in Greene, Polk, Christian, Jasper, Laclede and Webster counties. The drug ring distributed more than 45 kilograms of methamphetamine from June 2013 to November 2014.

Tapia admitted providing about 10 pounds of the drug every two weeks to the operation.

Daniel Harmon was arrested in December 2013 outside of St. Louis and was incarcerated after pleading guilty to drug and weapons charges.
