UNDATED (WSAU) Two Merrill women were sentenced to federal prison for distributing heroin in Marathon and Lincoln Counties. 48-year-old Jennifer Roper and 32-year-old Leanna Wells were arrested in November, 2011.

Yesterday Roper was sentenced to one year in federal prison, and three years supervised release. Wells will serve a 7-month sentence. Both pled guilty in March.

The arrests came after a lengthy undercover investigation by the Marathon and Lincoln County sheriffs departments and the state Department of Justice.
