AURORA | One of three men charged with killing a man at a south Aurora motel last fall accepted a plea agreement with prosecutors last week.
Robert Harper, 18, pleaded guilty to burglary and robbery on Feb. 24, prosecutors said. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dropped several other charges against Harper, including first-degree murder and kidnapping.
Harper was charged along with Maliek Bailey, 36, and Steven Wayne Bassett, 27, in connection with the Oct. 15 slaying of Michael Pinkus at the Crestwood Suites motel.
The three defendants have been held without bond at the Arapahoe County Jail since their arrests last fall.
Harper is scheduled for sentencing April 15. It wasn’t clear Monday what sentence he may face or if he is expected to testify against Bailey and Bassett.
