PROVO, Utah (AP) — One of four people charged in the fatal shooting of a man at a house in Provo in March has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and aggravated burglary.

The (Provo) Daily Herald reports Brayden Marshall entered the plea in Fourth District Court Wednesday for the death of Gustavo Ramirez.

He faces anywhere from six years to life in prison at his sentencing set for Jan. 3.

The alleged shooter in the case, Jesse Gourdin, has been charged with capital murder. If convicted, he could be sentenced to death. His preliminary hearing is set for Dec. 6.
