Husband and Wife Plead Guilty to Federal Corruption Charges

Kenneth Gambill and his wife, Ruth, have both pleaded guilty to charges of helping to rig construction bids in the aftermath of a tornado that tore through West Liberty in 2012.

They said they were involved in working with Morgan County Judge-Executive Tim Conley to ensure their construction company would get the lowest bids in the cleanup and rebuilding efforts.

Conley is accused of getting kickbacks in return.
