Marcus Logan Vaughn

CUMBERLAND — A Cumberland man was sentenced to a 50-year prison term Tuesday for the 2018 home invasion and armed robbery of a Grant Street residence in Frostburg, according to the Office of Allegany County State's Attorney Michael O. Twigg.

Marcus Logan Vaughn, 33, was sentenced by Allegany County Circuit Court Judge Jeffrey Getty.

The judge's order requires a five-year mandatory minimum sentence in the Maryland Department of Corrections for Vaughn's role in the crime that occurred on Dec. 30, 2018. 

The law further requires that he shall serve a minimum of 50% of his total sentence before becoming eligible for parole.

Vaughn was convicted in a four-day jury trial in September on charges of home invasion, armed robbery, first-degree burglary, first-degree assault and use of a firearm in commission of a felony.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant State's Attorney Karen Detrick and Assistant State's Attorney Samuel Lane. Vaughn was represented by David Schram and Elizabeth Lamm of the Public Defender's Office.

Investigation of the incident by the Allegany County Combined Criminal Investigation Unit determined several victims were assaulted before Vaughn and other suspects fled. One of the victims was found bleeding at the scene before being taken by ambulance to the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center.

Detectives of the C3I Unit determined five suspects took part in the incident. All of the suspects have been arrested and charged as a result of the investigation.

The investigation that led to the arrests was handled by Frostburg Police with assistance of Frostburg State University Police.
