KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin man accused of killing another man and going on the run in 2015 has pleaded guilty to the most serious charges against him.

Thirty-three-year-old Andrew Obregon agreed to plead guilty Friday to first-degree homicide, attempted homicide, armed robbery and fleeing police. In exchange, the remaining charges were dismissed.

The Kenosha News reports Obregon’s surprise plea averts a trial that was scheduled to begin Monday.

Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley plans to ask that Obregon spend the rest of his life in prison when he’s sentenced in April.

Defense attorneys declined to comment on why Obregon decided to take the plea deal.

Obregon was accused of killing Tywon Anderson over a drug deal in September 2015 and then eluding capture for weeks before being arrested in Illinois.
