OAKLAWN, Kan. (AP) _ The last of five people charged in a 2011 deadly robbery near Wichita pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Twenty-six-year-old Francis Dupree was to go on trial this week for first-degree murder but pleaded guilty Monday to the lesser charge. Dupree will be sentenced May 29.

The Wichita Eagle reports all five suspects have been convicted of first- or second-degree murder in the December 2011 death of 19-year-old Markez Phillips.

Prosecutors say the men forced their way into a home in Oaklawn and shot Phillips, who was visiting his girlfriend. The thieves left with three big-screen TVs but no money.
