DELAWARE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

A Missouri man serving time in federal prison for robbing and assisting in the Oklahoma drowning death of a Missouri banker has died.

Bureau of Federal Prison records show Joseph Agofsky, 46, died on March 5, 2013 in a North Carolina federal prison.

Agofsky and his brother, Shannon Agofsky, 42, were convicted in Oklahoma of kidnapping Dan Short from his home on October 6, 1989.

After stealing more than $75,000 from Short's bank in Noel, Missouri, they drove him to Oklahoma's Grand Lake.  Shannon Agofsky tied Short to a weighted chair and threw him off state Highway 10's Cowskin Bridge into the water.

Short's body was recovered several days later.

Both brothers were convicted of the robbery in 1992, but only Shannon was convicted of killing Short. He was sentenced to death.

Shannon Agofsky remains on death row at the federal penitentiary at Terre Haute, Indiana.
