Lincoln, NE (AP) - The second suspect in the 2012 shooting death of a Lincoln man has pleaded guilty after making a deal with prosecutors.

On Wednesday 24-year-old Miguel Castillo was convicted of aiding and abetting the use of a firearm to commit a felony and of being an accessory to second-degree murder. Prosecutors reduced a murder charge in exchange for Castillo's plea.

Castillo and 21-year-old Adrian Casares are accused of killing Tyler Schoenrock in December 2012. Schoenrock's body was found on a rural road outside of Lincoln. Casares pleaded no contest to lesser charges last week.

Each man says the other shot Schoenrock. Both men are scheduled to be sentenced in April.
