HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Three defendants charged in the sexual assault of a 15-year-old boy at a house party in Hopkinsville have struck deals to testify against their alleged accomplice.

The Kentucky New Era (https://bit.ly/2bHAldH ) reports that Colton Cavanaugh, Samuel Miller and Tyler Perry agreed to testify against the only remaining defendant still facing charges, Dayton Jones.

Cavanaugh entered a guilty plea Thursday to amended charges of first-degree sodomy and first-degree wanton endangerment. His plea came a day after Miller and Perry also pleaded guilty to various charges.

The four are accused of assaulting the incapacitated 15-year-old at Miller’s house during a party. Police reports say the boy suffered severe internal injuries following the assault.

Jones’ trial is set to begin Monday. Final sentencing has been set for Nov. 1.
