'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A federal judge sentenced a Penn Hills woman to five years and three months in prison for money laundering connected to a heroin ring.

Jody Taylor 52, pleaded guilty in November to financing trips to Newark, N.J., where drug couriers obtained several kilograms of heroin that were distributed in the Pittsburgh area. Taylor was operating a day care center out of her home while the ring operated from 2005-08, prosecutors say.

U.S. District Judge David Cercone also sentenced Taylor on Tuesday to three years of probation.
