MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -A third defendant pleaded guilty in the beating death of former Villanova basketball star Howard Porter a day before his trial was to start.
Fredquinzo King pleaded guilty Tuesday to aiding and abetting first-degree murder and awaits sentencing Oct. 13.
Porter led Villanova to the 1971 NCAA championship game. He played seven pro seasons, but his career was cut short by injuries and cocaine addiction. He came to Minnesota for treatment and was working as a probation officer when he was killed in 2007.
Rashad Raleigh pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in August and has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. He described Porter's death as a robbery gone bad.
Another defendant pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting aggravated robbery for luring Porter to her St. Paul home, where he was beaten.
