Collierville home invasion earns man 240 years in jail

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - An acknowledged drug dealer has been sentenced to 240 years in prison for a home invasion in Collierville two years ago.

Judge James Lammey on Tuesday cited Curtis Keller's lack of remorse in handing down the sentence for a home invasion in which he threatened a woman and children with guns and pistol-whipped a man, The Commercial Appeal reports.

Keller was convicted of 8 felonies last fall for leading masked gunmen into a home to retrieve 15 pounds of marijuana that the man in the house had been selling after telling Keller it had been stolen.

Keller told police he went to the house to get $10,000 or the marijuana back.

At the sentencing hearing, Keller accused witnesses of lying and claimed his attorney, Rebecca Coffee, colluded with prosecutors.
