Two of the three charged with a burglary broken up in progress at a home on the Route 161 Extension in rural Iuka last December have pleaded guilty to burglary charges in Marion County Court.
39-year-old Christopher Brown of 4th Street in Xenia was sentenced to three years in prison to be followed by two years of parole. He was also given credit for 27 days served in jail.
31-year-old Cory Jones of Kinmundy Road in Louisville was sentenced to four years probation, credit for 27 days served in jail and ordered to undergo alcohol and drug evaluation and treatment.
Charges are still pending against the third person arrested. 39-year-old Melissa Schnepper of West 6th in Flora faces charges of possession of meth and possession of contraband in a penal institution charges in addition to burglary.
The three allegedly fled the home in a vehicle on the Route 161 Extension after they were found inside the home that had been ransacked and several items were stolen. They were later stopped by a Xenia Police Officer on Old US 50 between Xenia and Flora.
