Murder Suspect Pleads Guilty

By  | 

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- One of three teens accused in a 2007 murder plead guilty today and accepted a 23-year sentence.

Nick Halsted was 28-years-old when his home was robbed and he was shot in the head.

Philip Scherer plead guilty Wednesday morning.

He'll get more than five years credit for time already served.

A jury found the alleged trigger man not guilty in 2010.

The family says they were hoping for the maximum sentence, but they're just glad it's over.
