WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A third person has been sentenced in a fatal robbery in Palm Beach County.

The Palm Beach Post reports that 28-year-old Jose Cosme-Sella was sentenced Wednesday to 32 years in prison. Jurors previously convicted him of second-degree murder and robbery.

Authorities say 50-year-old Armando Robles was found dead in a Lake Worth vacant lot in April 2016. An autopsy determined he had been attacked with a stun gun.

Surveillance video from nearby businesses shows Robles walking with a woman, later identified as Joann Cintron, and followed by two men, Cosme-Sella and Jesus Boneta.

Cintron and Boneta previously pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Citron received 20 years in prison, and Boneta received 32 years.
