Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- A man accused in a fatal shooting during a robbery of a Chandler smoke shop in 2008 has been sentenced Wednesday to 25 years in prison.

Maricopa County Superior Court says 22-year-old Cesar Felipe Buis pleaded guilty earlier to second degree murder and armed robber.

Chandler police say 26-year-old Shawn Michael Foote was shot in the head at the Smoke'N'Stuff shop on Feb. 9, 2008.

Foote was part owner of the shop. He later died at a Chandler hospital.

The case went unsolved for seven months before police received information that led to Buis' arrest.
