A Lincoln man is no longer charged with first-degree murder in connection to a 2012 murder after making a plea deal in Lancaster County Court Wednesday.

Miguel Castillo pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting a felony and accessory to a felony. He is expected to be sentenced in April. Castillo was originally charged with first-degree murder in the case as well.

Castillo was arrested, along with Adrian Casares after the killing of 25-year-old Tyler Schoenrock. Neither are charged with murder in Schoenrock's death.

Earlier, Casares pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting a felony. The judge found him guilty. He is expected to be sentenced in April.

Police say a man delivering newspapers found Schoenrock's body in a rural area north of Lincoln in December 2012.

Preliminary autopsy reports confirm that Schoenrock was shot to death.
