Two people have taken plea deals in federal court for the slaying of a man on the Winnebago Reservation in northeast Nebraska.

20-year-old Jeremiah Wolfe pleaded guilty Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Omaha to second-degree murder.

His mother, 39-year-old Natasha Wolfe, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit second-degree murder.

The two and Lawrencia Merrick were charged with the April 2017 strangulation of 32-year-old William Redhorn Jr. on the Winnebago Reservation.

Merrick is expected to change her plea of not guilty at a hearing Thursday.

Court records say Jeremiah Wolfe and Merrick told investigators they came upon Redhorn outside a building he was trying to break into.

Wolfe says a fight broke out and he put Redhorn in a chokehold until he quit struggling.

Merrick says she also struck Redhorn.
