A judge in Maryland sentenced Darin Tyler Robey, now 23, to 60 years in prison after he was found guilty of second-degree murder. Fifteen years of the sentence was suspended.

As FrontPageDetectives previously reported, on Dec. 26, 2021, police in Frederick, Maryland, responded to a Burger King.

There, authorities learned that Robey got into an argument with a woman inside the restaurant. Jaion Antonio Penamon tried to intervene and was shot dead.

The Frederick News-Post reported that Robey’s then-girlfriend worked at the Burger King, and Robey believed she was having an affair with a coworker. When Penamon asked Robey to step outside, that is when he was shot dead.

Robey was later apprehended, though the gun was never found, according to the report.

“Robey lacked remorse from the second he pulled the trigger, to when he stepped over Jaion’s dying body and casually walked away, until today,” Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith said, according to the News-Post.
