GLADWIN, MI (WNEM) -

The final suspect charged in the robbery of a Gladwin gun shop has been sentenced and will spend the next 15 to 30 years in prison.

Michael Bowman pleaded no contest after prosecutors say he drove Charles Rowan and Rosalinda Martinez to the Guns N' Stuff shop in Gladwin.

During the robbery, the store's owner was beaten and suffered severe head injuries.

The other suspects in the case, Charles Rowan and Rosalinda Martinez were sentenced in November 2013.

Rowan was given 17 to 40 years behind bars and Martinez was given six to 30 years in prison. The 26-year-old Rowan caught the attention of the entire world after he faked his own death.

Rowan, Martinez and Michael Bowman devised a plan, all working together to rob Guns 'n Stuff just on the outskirts of town. Rowan beat the 71-year-old owner, Richard Robinette, over the head with a hammer during the robbery. 

Robinette miraculously survived and days later Rowan's mug shot appeared on TV as a person of interest. It was in that very moment that the man everyone thought to be dead was indeed alive. Rowan was back from the dead.
