COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - One of the three men charged in a fatal Council Bluffs shooting and robbery has pleaded guilty as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

The Daily Nonpareil reports 30-year-old Markis Davis pleaded guilty to robbery Tuesday in connection with the March 7 shooting death of Anthony Walker. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped all other charges.

Davis says he plotted with 22-year-old Wesley Correa-Carmenaty and 19-year-old Ben Lein to rob Walker of drugs and money.

Davis invited Walker to his apartment. Police say Lein and Correa-Carmenty followed him with guns.

One man carried a BB gun and the other held a .40-caliber handgun. Both Lein and Correa-Carmenty say they were the one holding the BB gun. They are awaiting trial.
