(UNDATED) -A federal judge has sentenced an Indianapolis man to 60 years in prison for his role in the robbery and slaying of a Hayden gun dealer.

U.S. District Judge Sarah Evans Barker sentenced 25-year-old Darryl Worthen, on Monday in connection with the September 2014 death of 60-year-old Scott Maxie, at his shop Maxie's Muscatatuck Outdoors Store

Worthen entered a plea agreement in July in U.S. District Court in New Albany.

Worthen and two other men are accused of slaying 60-year-old Scott Douglas Maxie. The robbery and murder took place inside the shop 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 Worthen and 23-year-old Dejuan Worthen and their cousin, 20-year-old Darion Harris, all of Indianapolis.

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.
