Midland, TX - Midland Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Drug and Firearm Offenses in Connection with the Murder of Two Midlanders in July 2015
A federal judge sentenced 27-year-old Ryan David Green to 35 years in federal prison on firearm and drug trafficking charges in connection with the murder of two Midland residents in July 2015.
In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Judge David Counts ordered that Green be placed on supervised release for a period of five years after completing his prison term.

By pleading guilty, Green admitted that on July 17, 2015, he and his co-defendants—Sean Blake Jobe and Trace Ryan Roland—conspired to murder a Midland man because of drug money the man owed to Roland.
According to court records, in the early morning hours of July 17, 2015, Green and Jobe went to a home in Midland and shot and killed the man and his girlfriend, who were living in a shed behind the home. Then they set fire to the shed and burned the victims beyond recognition.
