BATON ROUGE - Larry Sterling and Ikey Washington, who were accused of being involved with the murder of a Georgia man at a Baton Rouge restaurant, pleaded guilty and were sentenced today.

Authorities said the two were working with Antonius Jones, who was convicted in August of killing David Demerssseman during the robbery at a local Waffle House in 2010. He was given a life sentence for the murder.

Sterling and Washington pleaded guilty today to two counts of being accessory after the fact to an armed robbery. Investigators said Sterling was the getaway driver during the robbery, and Washington was an accomplice.

Judge Louis Daniel gave Washington and Ikey two five-year sentences each to run consecutively, without the possibility of parole or probation.
