An Oxon Hill man was sentenced Monday to 65 years in prison in the slaying of a 15-year-old who was being robbed of a pair of boots.

Tayvon Williams, 24, pleaded guilty this summer to second-degree murder, first-degree assault and related charges in the February 2013 killing of Charles Walker Jr.

The case also involved four other men who were “driving a stolen church van in Hillcrest Heights looking for a victim to rob,” according to prosecutors with the Prince George’s County state’s attorney’s office.

Walker was carrying a bag of Timberland boots he had just bought for his girlfriend when he was robbed and shot in the back as he tried to run away, according to family and prosecutors.

Walker’s shooting was one in a string of six teen homicides that jarred Prince George’s in 2013.

All the men arrested in the case pleaded guilty and have been sentenced.
