SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The getaway driver accused in the murder-for-hire plot of a South Hill businessman has pleaded guilty.

The Spokesman Review reports (https://bit.ly/1V9nn9x ) that Robby Wahrer pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal racketeering charge for his role in the 2013 murder of Doug Carlile.

That leaves only two of the six men implicated in the scheme to stand trial.

Prosecutors say Wahrer helped gunman Timothy Suckow carry out an armed robbery at Carlile’s home for an unnamed boss in North Dakota. In exchange, Wahrer was told the boss would give him oxycodone pills to sell in Spokane.

Prosecutors believe the boss is James Henrikson. They say he ordered Carlile’s murder after a joint oil venture in North Dakota went bad.

Suckow and two other defendants pleaded guilty to charges last week.
