Federal prosecutors say three people involved in a drug ring in the Hampton Roads area have pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges.
Prosecutors say 51-year-old Fred Phillip Wills Jr. and his 29-year-old wife Makishea Bobbi Wills entered guilty pleas Monday in Norfolk federal court. So, too, did 24-year-old Kendall Dwight Callaham.
Prosecutors say each pleaded to conspiracy to possess and distribute cocaine and marijuana. They face up to life in prison. Prosecutors say sentencing is set for Feb. 28.
Fred Wills has owned several restaurants over the years under the "Big Daddy" name.
