CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A Camden man has been sentenced to 124 years in prison after he was convicted of killing a Woodlynne bakery owner during a botched robbery.

Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo said Friday a superior court judge sentenced William Cooper, of Camden, to prison for his role in the 2009 shooting.

Cooper and Rashawn Carter, of Philadelphia, were convicted of one count each of felony murder and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Prosecutors say Cooper shot and killed 29-year-old Oscar Hernandez in front of Hernandez’s wife and customers while trying to rob Alex’s Bakery in 2009.

The robbers were never able to open the cash register and fled empty handed.

Carter is scheduled to be sentenced on September 18.
