Man gets 35 years for his role in Catfish King murder

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A man who helped plan a robbery-gone-wrong at Catfish King last year agreed to a 35-year prison sentence, the District Attorney's Office said.

Robert DeWayne Buschman pled guilty to aggravated robbery and will be eligible for parole after he has served half his term.

In exchange for the plea, the prosecutors agreed to drop capital murder and aggravated assault charges.

Buschman helped plan a robbery which left Keith Labrozzi dead from several gunshot wounds. Investigators say Labrozzi was trying to protect his girlfriend, Katie Jeffreys after she left the restaurant with the night deposit. Jeffreys was a manager at Catfish King.

The man who shot Labrozzi, Brian Martin Womack, pled guilty in June to a murder charge and is serving two life sentences.

A man who is also accused of planning the robbery, Jerrod Berwick, is scheduled for a November trial.
