Man convicted of killing Wisconsin woman in San Diego hotel

A Beloit man was sentenced Monday to federal prison for selling heroin and methamphetamine between March and June, according to a release.

Paul Winfield, 41, was sentenced to 55 months in federal prison, officials said. He pleaded guilty on Nov. 4 to one count of selling heroin.

At the time of the drug sales, Winfield was on federal supervision for a 2001 felony conviction for his role in a conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine, according to the release.

In March, an FBI task force learned that Winfield was distributing heroin in the Beloit area, officials said. A confidential informant helped law enforcement officers conduct four buys of heroin and meth from Winfield.

Investigators found almost 38 grams of heroin and 27 grams of meth in Winfield’s home, according to the release.
