Men sentenced in 2001 slaying at credit union

DETROIT (AP) -- Two Detroit men have been sentenced in the 2001 killing of an armored-truck courier who was stocking ATMs at a Dearborn credit union.

U.S. District Court Judge Victoria Roberts last Friday sentenced 41-year-old Kevin Watson to life in prison without the possibility of parole and 42-year-old Norman Duncan to 37 years in prison.

Prosecutors say Watson, Duncan and four other men robbed an armored truck delivering money to the ATM machines at the Dearborn Federal Credit Union.

During the course of the robbery, authorities say armored truck guard Norman Anthony Stephens was shot in the back and killed with shotguns used by the robbers.

The U.S. attorney's office says Watson, Duncan and the others escaped with $204,000 in cash.

Stephens and his wife had six children.
