LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 23-year-old former U.S. Army soldier pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and robbery with a weapon in the 2011 shooting death of a taxi driver in Las Vegas.
Autumn Dawn Murry faces 10 years to life in prison under a plea deal that avoided a trial due to start Monday in Clark County District Court.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that prosecutors agreed to drop three other felony charges against Murry.
She was accused of robbing a convenience store before robbing and killing 30-year-old taxi driver Tesfaye Arze early March 4, 2011.
Security video showed Murry and former co-defendant Felicia Mosley in the taxi shortly before Arze was found.
Mosley later pleaded guilty to robbery.
Murry is being held at the Clark County jail pending sentencing May 8.
