A man who’s already serving time for a heroin distribution conviction in Salisbury has been sentenced to two more years in prison for trying to intimidate a State’s witness.

Tyrell Kimble was sentenced to two additional years in the Wicomico County Detention Center today. The Wicomico County State’s Attorney’s Office says leading up to his trial on September 18, Kimble contacted the family of a witness for the prosecution, and said that she wouldn’t see her kids and family again if she showed up for the trial. At the trial, Kimble was convicted for distributing heroin, and received a 20-year sentence, including six years in prison.

Today, Kimble was found guilty of obstructing justice by threatening a State’s witness or their family.
