Court records show a man charged in connection to the death of a 28-year-old in Minneapolis more than a year ago will be sentenced this summer.
According to the court register, Brian Pierre Swearegene entered a guilty plea to aiding and abetting second-degree murder during a hearing Tuesday morning. He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 27.
Swearegene was initially also charged with illegal possession of a gun or ammunition in the death of Darrell Lamont Sims II of Brooklyn Park. He was charged by warrant and was later arrested in Superior, Wisconsin.
As previously reported by 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS, Dajohn Cortez Ramon Yarborough is also charged in connection to Sims’ death.
Police found Sims critically injured from a gunshot wound to his chest in a backyard near the intersection of 24th Street and Elliot Avenue South. He was taken to a hospital but later died from his injuries.
