WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has overturned the prison sentences of Texas brothers who ran a camp in Kansas where hunters paid thousands of dollars to illegally shoot deer.

The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Thursday the district court made a mistake in sentencing James and Marlin Butler, who ran Camp Lone Star near Coldwater.

The court said the value of the wildlife at the camp should not have been based on the full price of a guided hunt, but on the actual value of the animals involved.

Camp owner James Butler Jr. was sentenced to 41 months in prison. His brother, Marlin, who worked as a guide, was sentenced to 27 months in prison. The brothers are both from Martinsville, Texas.
