SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A middle Georgia man has been sentenced to life in prison in an armed robbery that to his accomplice's death.
Ronnie Holder of Milledgeville pleaded guilty to charges including armed robbery in Chatham County Superior Court Wednesday.
Authorities have said Holder and an accomplice robbed a Wendy's restaurant on Wilmington Island in late December of 2011. Officials have said they were involved in a shootout with the restaurant's manager after taking an undisclosed amount of cash from an office.
The manager wounded Holder and fatally shot his accomplice as they fled the scene.
District Attorney's spokesman Daniel Baxter says a Wendy's employee who was there the night of the robbery was also arrested on charges of being a party to the crime. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.
