Denver (AP) -A man the FBI says has ties to two dead people and two who remain missing has been sentenced on a federal firearms charge.
Forty-two-year-old Scott Lee Kimball was sentenced Thursday to 5 years, 10 months, six months after pleading guilty to being a felon in possession of a weapon.
He's already serving a 48-year sentence in Boulder County for theft and being a habitual offender. He'll serve the new sentence once that one is complete.
Kimball, who has several felony convictions, acquired a scoped Winchester Rifle in 2005.
He was also a cooperating witness for the FBI.
Kimball has not been charged in any of the disappearances or deaths of the people the FBI has linked him to.
