READING, Pa. -

A man was ordered to prison after pleading guilty to murder for the deadly shooting of a man in Reading.

A Berks County judge on Monday sentenced Jacob Santiago to 27-1/2 to 55 years in state prison.

Santiago, 35, pleaded guilty to third degree murder for the deadly shooting of Alexander Stewart during a robbery in the 200 block of Walnut Street last May.

Stewart, 24, ran away before collapsing near the Googleworks in Reading's Entertainment Square.

Three other people who stand accused of trying to lure Stewart are awaiting trial.
