In March 1997, Roney was sentenced to death for the first-degree murder of Philadelphia Police Officer Lauretha Vaird during a failed PNC Bank robbery he committed along with Warren McGlone and Ernest Mark Canty (both whom were convicted of second-degree murder). The murder occured on January 2, 1996 during the attempted bank robbery. Roney was the triggerman, while McGlone drove the getaway car. Canty held the 9mm. gun and ordered employees of the PNC bank to open the vault. Vaird, who responded to the bank’s silent alarm, was shot in the abdomen by Roney, and was the city’s first female officer to be killed in the line of duty.
He is currently an inmate at Pennsylvania’s State Correctional Institution at Greene.
