He then apparently shot Bayron-Nieves as she struggled to get the register open.

Bayron-Nieves' mother, who has previously called for Glynn to serve life in prison, was in court Thursday for the indictment.

NYPD officials say that old-school detective techniques and new technology helped police arrest Glynn.

Detectives tracked Glynn to a building on Patchen Avenue in Brooklyn where they arrested him.

Glynn was charged with murder, two counts of robbery, criminal use of a firearm, and criminal possession of a weapon.
