Beckstead Pleads Guilty To Burglary In Tyler Johnson CasePosted: Updated:
One of five people accused in the shooting death of Tyler Johnson last year has taken a plea deal.
Twenty-one year old Taylor Beckstead pleaded guilty to first-degree burglary in Jefferson County Court Wednesday morning.
She was originally scheduled for trial later this month.
Beckstead faces 15 years in prison and five years' post-release supervision when she's sentenced December 11.
Johnson was shot and killed during a robbery at his town of Pamelia home in May 2017.
Charged in the case besides Beckstead were Sammy Brown, Devin Davis, Shawn Moore, and Jamaal Carr.
Brown was found guilty at trial of murder, conspiracy, and eight other charges. He was sentenced last month to 24 years to life in prison.
Devin Davis was also charged with murder, but pleaded guilty to armed robbery in exchange for testimony against his four fellow defendants. He will serve 18 years in prison.
Shawn Moore pleaded guilty to second-degree murder last week. He faces 15 years in prison when he's sentenced in December.
Jamaal Carr pleaded guilty in August to second-degree murder. He's scheduled for sentencing on October 24.
