WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
The death penalty is off the table for a 19-year-old accused of murdering a man in January.
Timothy Mosley agreed to a plea deal last Friday for the murder of 18-year-old Justin Back, according to his attorney. The prosecution will drop the death penalty in exchange for Mosley's testimony against his co-defendant Austin Myers.
Attorney Dennis Lieberman says Mosley still faces life in prison without parole.
Mosley and 19-year-old Myers are indicted on nine counts, including aggravated murder and kidnapping. Police say that the two admitted to creating an elaborate plan to kill Back, who lived in Waynesville.
