SALISBURY, Md. - Lawyers hope to reach a plea deal for one suspect in the complex murder case of a Salisbury man last fall.
Marquavis McCluller,18, appeared in court Monday morning and pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit robbery.
As part of the plea bargain, the state will recommend probation up to two years if McCluller testifies truthfully against three remaining suspects, Deyamah Fisher, Gerard Williams and Sazon Porter for their cases on the Oct. 28th death of Jose Andreas Aguilera. If not, he could face a maximum of 15 years on the charge, plus the state could look at separate charges against McCluller.
But, prosecutors say, Aguilera was not the original target for an armed robbery.
After McCluller and his defense attorney Robert Greenleaf, entered the plea, Wicomico County State's Attorney Matt Maciarello went over sworn testimony and facts from McCluller that stated a drug dealer who goes by the name of Coco, was the original target.
Testimony from McCluller, two women and others said the five suspects planned to robbery at their meeting place on 1030 Adams Ave.
But, Maciarello says, they did not rob Coco because he either wasn't home or sleeping. Then, according to the State's Attorney, McCluller said he heard gun shots after walking back to the apartment.
McCluller was revoked from bond pending sentencing, which was postponed for up to 90 days
