A Marion teenager pleaded guilty Tuesday in connection with the murder of a Gas City woman earlier this year.
17-year old Matthew Tyra was accused of fatally shooting Ashley Rheam at her home in Gas City in March during a robbery.
The “Chronicle-Tribune” reports Tyra’s plea came after an attempt to get his trial moved to another county was turned down. He instead pleaded guilty to Murder and could face up to 65-years in prison when he’s sentenced in November.
