SALINA, Kan. (AP) - One of five men charged in the fatal shooting of a Salina girl has pleaded no contest to felony first-degree murder.

Under a plea agreement announced Monday, 18-year-old Andrew Woodring faces a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years served for his part in the death of 17-year-old Allie Saum in May 2015.

He will be sentenced July 8.

The Salina Journal reports (https://bit.ly/23IFQOr ) Woodring’s plea deal comes after another defendant, 19-year-old Stephen Gentry, was found guilty Friday of first-degree murder and three other charges. The other three defendants are awaiting court proceedings.

Prosecutors say Saum was shot as she was riding in a pickup truck that drove past a group of men who mistakenly thought the truck’s driver had been involved in an earlier confrontation with them.
