CHARLESTON, W.Va. — U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin sentenced a Charleston man Thursday to 70 months in federal prison, announced U.S. Attorney Carol Casto.

Miguel Quinones, 38, pleaded guilty in October 2016 to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

In October 2013, law enforcement personnel executed a search warrant at a storage unit in Dunbar, where they discovered two firearms. Quinones rented the unit and owned the guns, a 20-gauge shotgun and a .22 caliber rifle.

A Kanawha County jury acquitted Quinones in June 2016 in connection to the September 2013 death of Kareem Hunter.

Quinones was prohibited from owning a firearm because of a 2000 felony conviction in Fayette County for second-degree murder in connection to the death of a Beckley bar owner.
