DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - One of three men charged in the death of a 29-year-old man last summer has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/2oErwqX ) that 34-year-old Durell Parks Jr. pleaded guilty Thursday to willful injury resulting in serious injury in the Aug. 18 fatal stabbing of Romane Nunn Sr. in a Davenport park.

Parks had originally been charged with first-degree murder. He faces up to 10 years in prison when he’s sentenced May 24.

Two other co-defendants, 43-year-old William Crawford and 46-year-old Terrell Bloch, have pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and other counts in the case. Their trials are set to begin in August.
