Guilty Plea in Minneapolis Double Homicide
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A 22-year-old Chicago man has pleaded guilty to killing two men in Minneapolis earlier this year.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said Tuesday that Brian Deshawn Morse pleaded guilty to two counts of intentional second-degree murder.
Prosecutors say Morse shot and killed 47-year-old Odell Frazier and 56-year-old Eddie Pelmore as the two men sat in a car on Minneapolis' north side in April. Both men died of gunshot wounds to the head.
Morse entered his plea just days after a grand jury indicted him on first-degree murder charges, which carry a mandatory life sentence without parole upon conviction.
Sentencing is set for July 13. Morse is expected to be sentenced to 55 years in prison.
