OLATHE, Kan. — One of four teens charged with trying to rob a Shawnee gun store and killing its owner is expected to take a plea deal Thursday.
Prosecutors believe DeAnthony Wiley pulled the trigger in January, and killed “She’s A Pistol” co-owner Jon Bieker as he tried to defend his wife and co-owner, Becky.
Wiley’s Attorney previously told FOX 4 that he is not admitting to being the gunman, but admitting that the murder occurred in the course of the robbery in which he was involved.
With his plea, Wiley waives his right to a jury trial and will proceed directly to sentencing.
The other three suspects are expected back in court next month.
The four men charged in the ‘She’s A Pistol’ store robbery and murder are:
De’Anthony Armond Wiley, 20
Hakeem Willie Malik, 18
Londro Emanuel Patterson, 20
Nicquan Ke-Aaron Midgyett, 20
