3 of 4 plead guilty in woman’s apartment shooting death

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — Three of four suspects charged in a Winchester woman’s 2014 shooting death have pleaded guilty to charges.

Local media outlets report that Christopher Robinson, Lamont Wilkerson and Aaron Stailey entered pleas Thursday to charges in 19-year-old Amber Caudill’s death.

Caudill died in December 2014 when a bullet fired into the apartment above hers went through the floor, striking her.

Robinson, Wilkerson and Stailey said in court that they were trying to rob the people in that apartment when the shooting happened.

Robinson pleaded guilty to murder, burglary and assault charges in the case. Stailey and Wilkinson entered pleas to complicity to each of those charges.

All three will be sentenced in November.

A fourth suspect, Lillian Barnett, is charged with complicity to murder in Caudill’s death. She’s awaiting trial.
