NORRISTOWN, Pa. - September 25, 2009 Montgomery County prosecutors say 25-year-old Angelo Shin, of
North Wales, set things in motion by telling several Philadelphia
men about large amounts of cash that 58-year-old Robert Chae kept
in his home. Prosecutors say Shin expected to be paid $2,000 for
Chae and his wife were preparing to leave for work when they
were ambushed in their driveway Jan. 9. Chae was bound with duct
tape, and prosecutors say he suffocated.
In addition to third-degree murder, Shin pleaded guilty Friday
to burglary, robbery, and related offenses.
Defense lawyer David Mischak says no promises have been made
about his client's sentence, but he trusts the court to be fair.
Several others are awaiting trial.
