A judge sentenced Charles Sequan Butler, 19, to the maximum of 30 years in prison for his involvement in the 2010 shooting death of Misael Flores at Mr. Wings & Pizza in Glen Burnie.
An Anne Arundel County Circuit Court judge sentenced a Brooklyn Park teen to 30 years in prison for his involvement in the botched robbery and murder of a Glen Burnie man in 2010.

Butler was charged in the murder of Misael Flores, a patron at Mr. Wings & Pizza, during a botched robbery on Nov. 12, 2010—the night before Flores' 21st birthday. For instant updates, …
