WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A Winston-Salem man has been sentenced to up to 15 years in prison for his role in a botched robbery that left a man dead.

The Winston-Salem Journal (https://bit.ly/292Uwy3 ) reports that 24-year-old Cary D. Crowder was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty in Forsyth County Superior Court to second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon in connection with the fatal shooting of 28-year-old Corey B. Crouch.

Assistant District Attorney Lizmar Bosques says Crowder and another man tried to rob Crouch, a low-level drug dealer on Sept. 21, 2014. When Crouch started shooting, Crowder and the other man fired back, killing Crouch. The other man was not charged because of lack of evidence.

As part of the plea agreement, Crowder will serve at least 11 years and eight months in prison.
