The second suspect in the December 2011 murders of a young girl and her uncle pleaded guilty Friday.

Jeremy Priel reached a plea deal with the Marion County prosecutor for his involvement in the murders of Kyleigh Crane, 7, and her uncle Jeremy Crane. Both were found shot to death in their Cumberland home in a crime that shocked the community.

Priel agreed to an executed sentence of 110 years in prison. He will be sentenced July 26.

Michael Bell, 23, pleaded guilty in April to murder charges and is expected to be sentenced to 100 years behind bars in an August hearing.

Police say robbery was the motive, and that Bell and Priel stole two video games and a cell phone from the Cumberland home.

Prosecutors filed requests for Life Sentence Without Parole against both defendants in 2012.
