LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A man accused of helping kill another man in Lincoln over a drug debt has taken a plea deal.

Lancaster County District Court records say 36-year-old Paul Clark pleaded no contest Tuesday to assault and weapons charges. Prosecutors dropped or lowered other charges, which included kidnapping and second-degree murder. He's accused of helping 37-year-old Dominic Aguirre kill 35-year-old Phillip Madlock on June 28 last year.

Clark's sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 25.

Aguirre has pleaded not guilty to murder, kidnapping and other charges. His trial is set to begin Feb. 4.
