by WVIRCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Two government witnesses who testified in the federal racketeering case against the gang members who killed Waynesboro Police Reserve Captain Kevin Wayne Quick are learning their punishment.

Tuesday, September 27, a federal judge sentenced 52-year-old Leslie Hope Casterlow to a term of 44 months behind bars.

Casterlow pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice charges back in July of 2014. Court records show she admitted to disposing of an ATM card and a bloody jacket while helping four people who were involved in the abduction and murder of Quick.

Investigators were able to connect a series of burglaries and robberies to Daniel Mathis, Kweli Uhuru, Shantai Shelton and Mersadies Shelton. The group car-jacked Quick and drove his Toyota 4Runner to different ATM's until one of them shot him in the back of the head. Quick's car was dumped in Louisa County. His body was later found in Goochland County.

All four defendants were sentenced to life in prison, plus additional years.

Twenty-four-year-old Anthony White was also sentenced in federal court Tuesday, receiving a term of 83 months in prison. He pleaded guilty in July of 2014 to a racketeering conspiracy charge for his role in a slew of thefts and the destruction of evidence in the Quick case.

White was also a main witness for the prosecution in the case.
