Indian teen enters guilty plea on a charge of first-degree murder
An Indian teenager pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the home-invasion killing of a businessman in Sheridan, Wyoming.

Wyatt Bear Cloud, 17, was due to go to trial on Monday for the August 2009 death of Robert Ernst, 79, on Monday. He agreed to plead guilty after a co-defendant was convicted of the murder last week.

Bear Cloud was 16 at the time of the crime. He was going to be tried as an adult.

Another co-defendant, Dennis Poitra Jr., who was found guilty, was 19. The third co-defendant, Dharminder Vir Sen, 16, is due to go trial in October as an adult.
