EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the last of eight defendants in a federal meth trafficking investigation has been sentenced.

74-year-old William Elder of Evansville was given life in prison without parole.

Seven other co-defendants, including Elder's son Matthew, were also recently sentenced.

Both Elders were found guilty in April 2015 of conspiring to distribute meth.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says the Elders were responsible for bringing over 50 pounds of meth to the Evansville area from Arizona over a six-month period.
