WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) — A Pittsburgh man has been sentenced to 10 years and 10 months in federal prison for operating a heroin trafficking ring.

Thirty-one-year-old Christopher T. Gyorko was sentenced Monday in federal court in Wheeling.

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

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