A co-defendant has pleaded guilty in the central Pennsylvania murder of a homeless man who authorities say was targeted as he slept in his car.
Twenty-year-old Malcolm Bull pleaded guilty Monday in York County Court to third-degree murder and conspiracy in the November 2012 death of 46-year-old Edward Green in York.
The plea came as a life term without parole was imposed on 24-year-old Shamar McCowin, who was convicted last month of second-degree murder but vows an appeal.
Bull, who also pleaded guilty in an unrelated assault, said he acted as a lookout for McCowin but didn't know anyone would be killed.
Deputy prosecutor David Maisch said prosecutors have agreed to recommend no more than 20 to 40 years in prison when Bull is sentenced next month.
