One of five men charged with killing a 66-year-old Tulsa man during a January 2012 home invasion pleaded guilty to attempted robbery Friday.

Police said Bill Zachary was watching TV in his living room when teenagers in ski masks barged in and demanded money. Zachary gave them the money, but was still shot and killed.

Uriah Mitchell is the third man to plead guilty to charges in the case. He was charged with first degree murder, first degree burglary, and attempted robbery. The murder and burglary charges against Mitchell were dropped and he pleaded guilty to attempted robbery.

Previously, Deandre Wright and Montre Brown were both sentenced to life in prison, after pleading to first degree murder and burglary.

Court records show Marquis Powell and Darrell Johnson are both due in court in November. They are both also charged with first degree murder, first degree burglary, and attempted robbery.

The judge sentenced Mitchell to 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation.
