Man enters plea deal linked to 2013 murder

Juwan Mosley-James. (April 7, 2014)

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — One of the men connected to a October 2013 Grand Rapids murder has entered into a plea agreement  that will likely result on only on year in the Kent County jail.

Juwan Mosley-James, 19, is charged in connection to the death of Domnick Floyd, who was shot and killed in the parking lot of a New York Fried Chicken in the early hours of Halloween 2013.

Wednesday, Mosley-James pleaded guilty to several counts as part of a deal: perjury, which carries a sentence of up to life in prison, larceny in a building, discharging a firearm from a vehicle and carrying a concealed weapon.

As part of the plea agreement, one count of receiving and concealing stolen property was dismissed.

Additionally, the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office recommended that Mosley-James’ sentence be capped at one year in the Kent County jail and probation.

Last week, Lawrence Scott pleaded guilty to committing Floyd’s murder.

Floyd was one of two men shot and killed in the restaurant parking lot that night. The other man killed, Delorian Taylor, was shot by a man he was apparently trying to rob. Authorities say the deaths were not connected.
