News release from the Kansas Attorney General's Office:

Two Kansas men were sentenced today on charges of attempted murder, methamphetamine and gun possession, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

Devon Andrew Simmons, 27, Neodesha, was sentenced to 93 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections by District Court Judge David W. Rogers in Wilson County District Court. The sentence included 93 months for attempted second degree murder and 11 months for possession of methamphetamine. Rogers ordered the sentences to run concurrently. Simmons pleaded no contest to the charges in February 2012.

Simmons is also currently serving sentences on 2008 convictions in Wilson and Montgomery Counties for possession of narcotics, aggravated battery and criminal damage to property. Rogers ordered today's sentences to run consecutive to the prior sentences.

Rogers also sentenced Brandon Bryce Beisly, 31, Newton, to 72 months in the Kansas Department of Corrections. The sentence included 72 months for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and 8 months for criminal possession of a firearm. Rogers ordered the sentences to run concurrently. Beisly pleaded guilty to the charges in March 2012.

Beisly is also currently serving a 2010 sentence for two charges of possession of narcotics in Harvey County. Rogers ordered today's sentences to run consecutive to the Harvey County sentences.

The charges stemmed from a 2011 investigation by the Wilson County Sheriff's Offices and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation with assistance from the Neosho County Sheriff's Office. Assistant Attorney General Greg Benefiel of Schmidt's office prosecuted the cases.
