KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — The trial for a Kenosha man accused of fatally shooting two men during a robbery ended abruptly when he agreed to a plea deal.
Nineteen-year-old Darshawn Frison pleaded guilty to two counts of party to first-degree intentional homicide Tuesday, on what would have been the second day of his trial in Kenosha County Circuit Court.
Twenty-three-year-old Carlos Garcia and 20-year-old Zachary Hernandez were killed April 5, 2013. Frison and two others are accused of plotting to rob the men before Frison fatally shot them.
Three other charges against Frison, including armed robbery, will be dismissed. The guilty plea carries mandatory life sentences. The Journal Times says prosecutors will recommend the possibility of parole in 50 years.
