LITTLE ROCK — A federal prosecutor says two men with ties to a drug cartel have pleaded guilty for their roles in a conspiracy to transport cocaine from Mexico to Little Rock for distribution in central Arkansas.

U.S. Attorney Christopher R. Thyer says Mohammed Kazam Martinez pleaded guilty Wednesday to conspiring to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms or more of cocaine hydrochloride. His brother, Homar Martinez, pleaded guilty to the same charge on Monday in Texas, where he is being held in a separate federal drug case.

They are the sons of Idalia Ramos Rangel, a known associate of high-ranking members of the Gulf Cartel, which is responsible for the distribution of hundreds of kilograms of cocaine in the U.S.

Both men face a sentence of up to life in prison.
