Maryland man sentenced in state robbery and slaying
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A Maryland man has been sentenced for his role in the slaying of a West Virginia woman during a home invasion.
A Berkeley Circuit Court jury convicted Roy L. Wisotzkey, 36, of Hagerstown, Md., on felony murder, first-degree robbery and other charges in August.
A judge sentenced Wisotzkey on Monday to life with mercy on the murder charge and 50 years on the robbery charge. Wisotzkey will be eligible for parole after serving 15 years of the murder sentence.
