SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Prosecutors in Santa Fe have withdrawn a plea offer made to a man accused of kicking another man to death in an arroyo last winter.

The Santa Fe New Mexican (https://goo.gl/r0yQ7o ) reports that the District Attorney’s Office said it was withdrawing its plea offer after learning that 38-year-old Orlando “Red Eyes” Yazzie had two previous felony convictions not disclosed during plea negotiations.

Yazzie had been scheduled to plead guilty and be sentenced Monday in the killing of 55-year-old Mark Ginnel.

Yazzie is now scheduled to go on trial in January.
