(INDIANAPOLIS) - The man accused of shooting a Hayden gun dealer to death and robbing him has entered a plea agreement in federal court.

25-year-old Darryl Anthony Worthen of Indianapolis faces spending the rest of his life in prison.

The plea deal was entered in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, but the sentencing hearing won't occur until after a pre-sentence investigation is completed in about 70 to 90 days U.S. District Attorney Barry Glickman said Monday.

Worthen and two other men are accused of slaying 60-year-old Scott Douglas Maxie. The robbery and murder took place at Maxie's Muscatatuck Outdoors store at 8485 West County Road 200S near Hayden.

Maxie was shot in the head during the robbery. His body was found lying on the floor of his shop.

A grand jury returned an indictment against the three defendants - brothers, Darryl Anthony Worthen and 23-year-old Dejuan Andre Worthen and their cousin, 20-year-old Darion Dashon Harris, all of Indianapolis.

All three have been charged with murder and robbery and are currently being held without bond at the Jennings County Jail.

Darryl Worthen was caught twice on the store's video surveillance system in the two days leading up to the murder. Worthen, who worked for FedEx, frequently stopped at Maxie's gun shop and had delivered a package the day before the murder.

Four guns from the 47 the men stole were recovered. Maxie had as many as 200 guns in his shop.
