One of the two remaining players in the shooting death of Devan Burris pleaded guilty in Daviess Superior Court on Wednesday.
Heaven Berry, 19, will face up to 8 years in prison on the charge of assisting a criminal, a Class C felony.
Berry was a resident of Shepard Hills apartments, 900 S. Meridian St., and a cousin of Logan Evans, who was wanted in connection to the Dec. 6, 2013 shooting.
According to court records, she heard about the shooting on Facebook and then told Evans via the social media platform to come stay at her apartment. While Evans was there, she attempted to contact friends of the two to get out of Washington. In one text message to a friend, she offered to pay $20 for her and Evans to stay with them.
It was those text messages that tipped Washington police to Berry's apartment. They visited the apartment several times, but it is not known if they were allowed entry to search for Evans.
A day later, Berry and Evans called police to turn themselves in.
Evans pleaded guilty to murder, and shot Burris during a supposed drug deal on Dec. 6, 2013. Burris and another male, Donal Kruchten, are accused of trying to rob Evans and friend Lucas Benjamin. Evans is serving 45 years while Benjamin is serving 30 years in prison in the shooting. Kruchten is awaiting trial on his charges.
Berry is now a member of the RARE program at the Daviess County Security Center. She has said in media interviews she is grateful for what the program has taught her while incarcerated.
Berry's sentencing is set for July 7.
