Seth Michael Binns, 27, Ryan Arellano, 28, and Mackenzie Fay, 24, pleaded guilty to various robbery charges in plea agreements that led to dismissal of felony murder charges. They will be sentenced on April 20.

Murder and attempted murder charges are pending against alleged co-conspirator Joshua Scott Binns, 32, in connection to the Nov. 8, 2016, murder of Charles Polzin, 50, and the shooting of Polzin’s son, who was not named.
