CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – One of four suspects charged in the 2016 shooting death of an 18-year-old Middleburg High School baseball standout entered a guilty plea Wednesday in Clay County court. 

Alexandra Schreffler pleaded guilty to armed robbery, and agreed to testify truthfully in any trials that result from the case.

She faces a minimum of 15 years in prison, and a maximum of life.

The other three defendants are awaiting trial. 

In March, Schreffler, Jordan Coleman, Ozell McNabb and Taurean Johnson were indicted on first-degree murder charges in the killing of Kolton Shearer, who was fatally shot during a July 2016 robbery in Clay County. The robbery and shooting took place during a marijuana deal.

As part of her guilty plea, the murder charge against Schreffler was dropped.
