CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - One of the men accused of killing a Charlotte Uber driver last year pleaded guilty Thursday afternoon in Mecklenburg County court.
James Stevens, 20, pleaded guilty to murdering Marlo Medina-Chevez. His alleged accomplice, 25-year-old Diontray Adams, pleaded not guilty last week.
Medina-Chevez was reported missing in May 2017. Family said he left for work and never returned. His body was found nearly a week later in Rock Hill, SC.
The pair were arrested in Maryland last May in connection to the fatal kidnapping and robbery of Medina-Chevez, a 44-year-old Uber driver. The two were caught after using Medina-Chevez's credit card.
Stevens will serve 240 to 300 months in prison plus a consecutive sentence of 60 to 84 months.
