Md. man gets 30 years for role in Va. killing

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A Maryland man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for his role in the shooting death of a Virginia handyman in 2010.

Twenty-two-year-old Reynard Prather of Oxon Hill, Md., pleaded guilty in federal court in Alexandria earlier this year to teaming up with two others to try and rob a Centreville man at his home because they expected him to be carrying large sums of cash.

When Prather and the other robbers arrived at the home, they ended up confronting a handyman who worked there — Jose Cardona, a legal immigrant from Guatemala.

During a struggle, Cardona was shot and killed.

Prather was not charged with firing the fatal shot.

The May 2010 slaying went unsolved for more than a year before Prather’s arrest in November.
