Sentencing is scheduled Monday for three New Jersey men for their roles in a string of bank robberies that led to the death of an FBI agent. Wilfredo Berrios, Efrain Lynn and Francisco Herrera-Genao were convicted in December of multiple bank robbery, conspiracy and weapons counts. A fourth man in the case previously pleaded guilty.

They were arrested in April 2007 when they FBI staked them out as they robbed a PNC Bank in Readington. FBI Agent Barry Lee Bush was mistakenly shot and killed by a fellow agent during that robbery.

The men were not charged with the agent's death. But a judge can consider it when she sentences them.
