DENVER -- Two men who refused to testify in the trial of a man convicted in the death of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams have been sentenced to 12 months each in jail for contempt of court.

Twenty-one-year-old Kataina "Markie" Jackson-Keeling and 22-year-old Mario Anderson were also sentenced Thursday to 90 days in jail and four years of probation for being accessories to perjury. The jail sentences will be served concurrently.

The two previously pleaded guilty to the charges. Denver prosecutors accused them of lying to a Denver grand jury investigating Williams' death in a drive-by shooting early New Year's Day 2007.

Jurors convicted Willie Clark in March of first-degree murder in Williams' death and sentenced him to life in prison plus 1,152 years.
