Posted: Updated:

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- The man convicted of robbing a Mount Pleasant Pizza Hut in July 2011 was sentenced to 28 years in prison on Friday.

According to the Ninth Circuit Solicitor's Office, Kenneth Murray was found guilty of armed robbery and sentenced to a near-maximum penalty. Murray faced between 10 and 30 years at his sentencing.

Prosecutors proved that Murray and his accomplice, Cleveland Clarence Major, robbed the Pizza Hut on Highway 17 as the business prepared to close on July 11, 2011. Murray jumped over the counter and pointed a BB gun at three employees before taking money from the cash register.

Murray confessed 10 days after the crime, officials said.

Investigators later recovered the gun used in the robbery.

Murray has previous convictions for criminal sexual conduct, cocaine distribution and damaging personal property. He previously served six years in prison.

Murray also faces armed robbery and kidnapping charges in connection to a 2011 robbery at a Mount Pleasant Piggly Wiggly.
