WOONSOCKET – Federal prosecutors wrote the final chapter in the sad tale of a robbery gone bad as the third and last conspirator in the shooting death of gas station manager David Main was sentenced in federal court Wednesday.

Kelley M. Lajoie, 35, of Springfield, Mass., was sentenced to 188 months in federal prison for her role as lookout in the September 2010 homicide of the 49-year-old husband and father from Lincoln.

Main, manager of the Shell station in East Woonsocket, was shot to death by Jason Wayne Pleau in front of a nearby Citizens Bank as Main was depositing business receipts. Pleau ambushed the manager after being informed of his activities by Lajoie, who staked out the Shell station for three hours and contacted Pleau on a cell phone when Main left for the bank in his car. After the fatal robbery, Pleau fled in a box truck driven by Jose Santiago, Lajoie’s boyfriend.
