MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The second man charged in connection to a 2016 break-in and fatal shooting pleaded to lesser charges Monday — and will serve home confinement instead of prison time.
Benjamin Bradley will serve between two and 20 years on home confinement after Judge Russell Clawges accepted guilty pleas to burglary and conspiracy in the March 2016 shooting death of Jessie James Loya.
Jeremiah Martin and Benjmain Bradley were accused of entering a Montrose Avenue residence March 31, 2016 to rob the residents of the home. The resulting incident led to the shooting death of Loya.
Martin is serving 15 years to life after a jury granted him mercy in his first degree murder plea earlier this year.
