TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ One of nine suspects in the shooting death of a Topeka woman and the wounding of her partner has pleaded no contest in the case.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports 19-year-old Daquan Wilkins on Monday entered the plea to voluntary manslaughter in the July 2011 death of 40-year-old Natalie Gibson and the wounding of 43-year-old Lori Allison. He will be sentenced April 22.
Last Friday, 19-year-old Jimmy Netherland was sentenced to life in prison plus 114 months in the case. Prosecutors said Netherland shot the women when they returned home as the suspects were planning to break into their house to steal a television.
