OMAHA, Neb. – Three more men have entered plea deals in connection to the death of a 5-year-old girl struck by a bullet in her Omaha home last year.
The plea deals entered Tuesday mean the gang members accused in the Jan. 15, 2014, shooting death of Payton Benson will not go to trial.
The Omaha World-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1Dbhw8L ) Jacob Brown pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit first-degree murder, and Adonus Moses pleaded no contest to the same charge. Kevin Peak, who was not present during the girl's shooting, pleaded guilty to attempted possession of a weapon.
All three men face up to 25 years in prison.
Two others previously pleaded to separate murder and weapon charges within the past week.
All five men will be sentenced in April.
