SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Two young women have pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the 2012 beating and stabbing death of a 64-year-old man in northern New Mexico.

The Santa Fe New Mexican (https://bit.ly/1bMagj0 ) reports that 24-year-old Angel Baldonado of Ohkay Owingeh and 20-year-old Sheanee Martinez entered the pleas Friday in state District Court.

Plea agreements require Baldonado and Owingeh to testify against the niece of the victim.

Authorities allege that Rhiannon Montoya planned the burglary that resulted in the death of her uncle, Rudy Montoya, a longtime Las Vegas educator.

The women reportedly stole a computer and a car during the burglary.

According to the plea agreements, Baldonado and Martinez could face up to 21 years in prison.

Montoya is scheduled to go on trial March 25 on charges that include first-degree murder.
