PITTSBURGH (AP) — A man has been sentenced to 19 to 38 years in prison for his role in the beating death of an immigrant Somali cab driver in Pittsburgh more than five years ago.

King Edwards, 25, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Allegheny County Court to third-degree murder, robbery, and conspiracy in the February 2017 death of Ramadhan Mohamed, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

Prosecutors alleged that he and two other men wanted to rob a pizza delivery driver on that night but due to the late hour opted for a cab driver. Authorities say the men punched, kicked and beat 31-year-old Ramadhan Mohamed, who died three days later at a hospital.

At the time of his death, Mohamed had a 2-year-old son and his wife was pregnant.
