PORTLAND — A 29-year-old Springfield man who supplied a gun used to kill four people was sentenced Tuesday in federal court in Portland to seven years in prison.
Corey Eugene Wyatt apologized to the families of the victims in the 2011 Northwest crime spree and said he feels the weight of murders committed by David “Joey” Pederson.
Cody Meyers, 19, of Lafayette, was one of the victims. Meyers was believed to be en route to the Newport Jazz Festival when he was reported missing.
Wyatt pleaded guilty to giving Pederson a gun and helping dispose of a stolen vehicle.
Pedersen pleaded guilty to killing his father and stepmother in Everett, Washington, and charges related to the killing of a Meyers on the Oregon coast and a man in Eureka, California, in a scheme to kill blacks and Jews in a white supremacist revolution.
