ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Baltimore man has been sentenced to 60 years in prison for his role in a fatal robbery that netted the suspects $17.
Twenty-three-year-old Rodney Barnwell pleaded guilty in March to first-degree murder in the robbery and shooting that killed 21-year-old Adam Bucklew in July 2010. He was sentenced on Tuesday.
The Capital of Annapolis reports that Barnwell and 23-year-old Ricky Mason accosted Bucklew in front of his home, shot him and took cash from his pockets before fleeing.
Mason also pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and was sentenced to 55 years in prison.
