ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man must serve 50 years in prison after pleading guilty in the shooting of two brothers, one of them fatally, during a St. Louis robbery in 2013.

Joseph Fox was accused of killing Haris Gogic and wounding Gogic’s brother in May 2013.

Fox was sentenced to five life sentences on murder, assault and armed criminal action charges and was sentenced to 20 years in prison on a robbery charge. A judge ordered him to serve his life sentences concurrently and the robbery sentence consecutively. In Missouri, a life sentence is calculated at 30 years.

The brothers had converted the front of their family’s home into a convenience store, specializing in fixing cellphones and other electronics. Officials say Fox shot both of the men before stealing about $30.
