LAS VEGAS (AP) - A man who had faced the death penalty in the slaying of an off-duty Las Vegas police officer in November 2009 has pleaded guilty in exchange for life without parole.

The Clark County District Attorney’s office confirmed Monday that 24-year-old Prentice Marshall pleaded guilty to eight felonies including murder and robbery for his role in the shooting death of 30-year-old Trevor Nettleton at the officer’s North Las Vegas home.

Marshall is expected to be formally sentenced in August.

Co-defendant Saul Williams Jr. still faces a death penalty trial scheduled to start Sept. 8.

Two of Marshall’s other co-defendants pleaded guilty to lesser charges in 2012. Two others were sentenced to state prison for being accessories to the crime.
