October 12, 2017
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A federal judge in Oklahoma City has sentenced two Houston residents to prison for their roles in an online dating scam that conned victims in multiple states out of millions of dollars.
The Oklahoman reports that U.S. District Judge Timothy D. DeGiusti on Friday sentenced 35-year-old Ken Ejimofor Ezeah to 11 years in prison. Last month the judge sentenced 33-year-old Akunna Baiyina Ejiofor to seven years.
The two were ordered to pay about $4.7 million in restitution to 10 victims. Prosecutors alleged the scheme occurred between May 2014 and January 2016.
