KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - A Kenosha man has entered a plea deal for his role in a robbery attempt that ended in a fatal shooting last year.

Twenty-year-old Brandon Horak pleaded no contest Thursday to felony murder.

Horak was accused of being the middle-man who arranged a meet-up in April between Anthony Edwards and two men who allegedly wanted to steal drugs. Edwards believed the men wanted to buy marijuana, according to police.

Instead of paying for the drugs, court records say one of the men took out a gun and fired as Edwards drove away, fatally striking him in the side.

The Kenosha News (http://bit.ly/1xQOQkC) reports Horak could be sentenced to up to 40 years in prison.

Cases against the other men - Joseph-Jamal Brantley and Markese Tibbs - are ongoing.
