TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A 19-year-old has pleaded guilty to a 2013 Tacoma robbery and murder.

The Pierce County prosecutor says Andrew James Boyd is scheduled to be sentenced on Wednesday.

In September 2013, 54-year-old Lawrence House was robbed and killed in his Stadium District condominium parking garage. House was shot twice in the chest.

Based on surveillance video and witness statements, police put together descriptions of two suspects.

In November 2014, Jeremy Bennett pleaded guilty to felony murder in the first degree as an accomplice and was sentenced to 28 years in prison.

The prosecutor says a recent robbery of a Tacoma Walgreens led investigators to Boyd, as the robbery involved a person wearing a distinctive jacket similar to the one he wore during the 2013 robbery.
