A man who plead guilty to a deadly home invasion was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison.
Under a plea deal Zachary Robinson pleaded guilty to manslaughter, first-degree assault and first-degree robbery.
Prosecutors say Robinson and Cody Mikami entered into a house on Halekoa Drive on January 21, 2010, and beat Mary Lee Koskinen, 85, and her live-in caretaker, Matthew Edmondson, 40. According to court documents, police found a brick and a tire iron covered with blood, as well as illegal drugs inside the home.
Robinson also pleaded guilty to an unrelated burglary. The 30-year prison term covered both cases.
A judge also sentenced Cody Mikami to 20 years in prison for his role in the beating.
