A 20-year-old man has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter for the murder of Pop Smoke, The Associated Press reports. The man, one among four others charged in the killing, also pleaded guilty in Inglewood juvenile court to home invasion robbery. His name has been withheld from the court because he was 17 years old at the time of the killing. He was sentenced to four years and two months in a juvenile facility.

Three adults and two juveniles were arrested in connection with the Brooklyn rapper’s death, which occurred as part of a home invasion at a Los Angeles AirBnB on February 19, 2020. Two of the adults, Corey Walker and Keandre Rodgers, are charged with murder and face the death penalty if convicted. The other juvenile in the case, whose name is being withheld because he was 15 years old at the time of the shooting, also faces charges of murder during the commission of a robbery and burglary. The fifth man who was arrested, Jaquan Murphy, was not ultimately charged in connection with the killing.
