Two men were sentenced Tuesday morning for their role in the 2011 murder and dismemberment of a Covington man.

Austin Eash and Quinton Kolenda were sentenced for facilitation of murder, abuse of a corpse, theft and tampering with evidence for the death of Donnell Brown.

Kenton County Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders says Eash received 15 years and Kolenda, who was a juvenile at the time of the crime, received 12 years.

Another suspect involved in the murder, Tiffany Herrera, was sentenced to 25 years in prison earlier this month.

Investigators say Brown and Herrera would often meet, and he would give her drugs or money in exchange for sex.

The night of his death, Herrera said Brown got physical with her, so she cut his throat. She then called Eash and the Kolenda, and Eash cut Brown's throat again, according to police.

They then dismembered Brown and tried to clean the apartment, leaving him in the bathtub.
