MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A driver who fatally dragged a New Jersey gas station owner during a botched robbery last summer has been sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Ronnie Fedo of Jefferson Township must serve 85 percent of the term imposed Friday before becoming eligible for parole.

Fedo pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in the death of 65-year-old Nisan Ambaroglu of Paramus. He was killed when Fedo — who had stolen a few dollars worth of lottery tickets and an energy drink from the business — tried to flee in a sport utility vehicle.

But Amabaroglu leaned through the driver’s side window in an attempt to stop Fedo, who drove off. He then dragged Ambaroglu through the parking lot and for about 100 yards on the highway before Ambaroglu fell from the vehicle.
