Man gets 50 years in Baltimore bartender’s 2017 killing

BALTIMORE — A Baltimore County judge sentenced a man to 50 years in prison Friday for killing a popular bartender four years ago in Baltimore city.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Judge Nancy Purpura handed down a life sentence to 21-year-old Malik Mungo, suspending all but 50 years.

Mungo was convicted of murder, robbery and gang charges in October. Sebastian Dvorak, a popular bartender, was robbed and fatally shot as he walked home after celebrating his 27th birthday in June 2017.

Dvorak’s slaying led to an investigation of a gang and 13 people were indicted on gang conspiracy charges.

The attorney general’s office chose to prosecute Mungo in the county since some gang members lived and kept drugs there.
