Two Accused in Fridley Drug Shooting Plead Guilty
ANOKA (AP) -- Two men charged in the fatal shooting of a Minneapolis man in Fridley have pleaded guilty to criminal charges.
Johnny Edwards entered the plea Monday to second-degree murder. Bryston Hill-Turnipseed pleaded guilty to aiding an offender committing second-degree murder.
Prosecutors say Edwards shot and killed 54-year-old James Chapman in Fridley last May after he and Hill-Turnipseed went to a residence to buy marijuana.
As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors will ask for a prison term between 23 and 30 years for Edwards and nearly 12 years for Hill-Turnipseed.
