CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Another teenager has pleaded guilty in the shooting death of an Arkansas couple.

Seventeen-year-old Connor Atchley of Greenbrier pleaded guilty Wednesday to first-degree murder in the deaths of Robert and Patricia Cogdell, who were both 66. In May, 15-year-old Justin Staton also pleaded guilty to killing the couple, who had raised him as their grandson.

Atchley was sentenced to 25 years in prison and agreed to testify against the remaining two defendants in the case, 18-year-old Hunter Drexler and 18-year-old Anastasia Roberts.

The Cogdells were found shot to death in 2015 in a wooded area near their home in Conway.
