WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita woman was sentenced Tuesday to six years in federal prison for providing a gun to a man who later was convicted of killing three people, U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister said.

Myrta Rangel, 35, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of giving a gun to a person she knew would use it in a drug trafficking crime and one count of giving a gun to a person she knew was a previously convicted felon.

In her plea, Rangel admitted she took part in a drug trafficking conspiracy including Jereme Nelson and others. She gave Nelson a handgun and he carried it to a meeting in rural Harvey Count to collect a drug debt. At that meeting, Nelson shot and killed three people: Travis Street, Angela Graevs and Richard Prouty. After the killing, Rangel and Nelson fled to Mexico. Eventually, Mexican authorities returned them to the United States for prosecution.
