SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - A South Bend judge has accepted a third plea agreement for a teenager accused of bringing drugs to a party that two brothers attended before dying of overdoses.

Under the deal accepted Thursday, 19-year-old Kyle Treber will plead guilty to drug possession while prosecutors will drop three counts of dealing narcotics.

The South Bend Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1Nqdgo4 ) the new agreement allows St. Joseph Superior Court Judge Jane Woodward Miller to hand down any sentence within the state guidelines of six months to 2½ years. The previous deals she rejected capped Treber’s maximum sentence.

Treber allegedly brought the prescription painkiller oxycodone to a June 2015 party in Granger. Nineteen-year-old Nick Savage and 18-year-old Jack Savage were found dead the next day.

Miller hasn’t set a date for Treber’s sentencing.
