Accomplice in 2012 deadly gas station robbery gets prison

BELVIDERE, N.J. - The third of four people involved in a deadly gas station robbery in New Jersey in 2012 was sentenced Tuesday.

David Beagell, of Blakeslee, was sentenced to 12 years in New Jersey State Prison for his role in the robbery.

Beagell, Zachary Flowers, Alexis Flowers and Andrew Torres planned to rob the BP gas station in Phillipsburg, New Jersey in January 2012, authorities said. After they stole cash, gas station attendant Kismathdas Kasam was shot in the leg with a shotgun and died at the hospital two days later.

Beagell pleaded guilty in 2012 to robbery and conspiracy charges. A murder charge was dropped as part of the plea deal.

Zachary Flowers was found guilty in November of murder, armed robbery and related charges. He is scheduled to be sentenced later this week.

Andrew Torres is serving a 40-year sentence after having been found guilty of armed robbery and felony murder.

Alexis Flowers took a plea deal for a shorter sentence.
