Two Moulton men who pleaded guilty in October to charges of robbery in the second degree for a 2013 Easter Sunday robbery will be sentenced Dec. 10.

Scotty Ray Smith, 35, and Panagiotis Jerome Theodoroy, 34, are scheduled to appear in court before Chilton County Circuit Judge Ben A. Fuller on Dec. 10 at 8:30 a.m. for sentencing.

Smith and Theodoroy were both indicted by a February grand jury in Chilton County on three counts of kidnapping second degree and two counts of robbery first degree for an incident, in March 2013.

The two broke into the home of 94-year-old Charles Dunlap, who lived on Third Street in Thorsby, on March 31 (Easter Sunday morning) and robbed him.

During the robbery, there were two other victims, a married couple, who entered the home as they normally would to check on the resident.

The three victims were held at gunpoint. The two men were tied up, and the suspects took the woman to her home, on Jones Street, where more property was taken.

The female was later dropped off in a rural area of Calera.

None of the victims involved were seriously injured.

Dunlap passed away, since the crime occurred.

Prosecutors agreed to dismiss four counts for both Smith and Theodoroy in exchange of guilty pleas to an amended charge of robbery in the second degree.

The charge of robbery in the second degree is a Class B felony and could carry a sentence of 2-20 years in prison.
