WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A man charged in the shooting deaths of a Wichita couple during a robbery has pleaded guilty.

The Wichita Eagle (https://bit.ly/251wNoX ) reports that 19-year-old Carlos Delacadena-Edwards pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree intentional murder and one count of aggravated robbery on Monday as part of a plea agreement.

Delacadena-Edwards and 21-year-old Steve Wade Edwards II are accused of killing 72-year-old Godofredo Moreno and his 71-year-old wife, Martha, in October 2014 while trying to collect a debt from the couple’s son.

Delacadena-Edwards was 17 at the time, but he was tried as an adult. He is scheduled to be sentenced July 13.

Edwards II pleaded guilty last week to two counts of first-degree felony murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.
