FAYETTEVILLE -- A man and woman were sentenced to federal prison Wednesday for dealing methamphetamine.

Matthew Barnes, 29, of Bentonville was sentenced to six years and five months followed by three years of supervised release, and Sonia Werline, 24, of Fayetteville was sentenced to four years and three months followed by three years of supervised release for aiding and abetting in the possession of more than 50 grams of meth with intent to distribute.

Narcotics investigators questioned Barnes and Werline at a Fayetteville motel about drug trafficking. Barnes and Werline admitted to possessing a large quantity of meth and police found about 1 kilogram of meth under the sink, according to court records.

Barnes and Werline were indicted by a federal grand jury in June and entered guilty pleas in September.

U.S. District Judge Timothy L. Brooks presided over the sentencings.
