BILLINGS, Mont. — A man has acknowledged shooting another man to death during a botched robbery in southern Montana.

The Billings Gazette reports 38-year-old Ross Breshears struck a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to deliberate homicide in the October 2015 death of 25-year-old Clinton Oldbull. The plea deal was dated Dec. 28, and Breshears is set to be sentenced March 14.

Prosecutors say he and 30-year-old Garrett Crandell went to Oldbull’s Billings home planning to rob a woman over a drug deal. Oldbull met them at the door and was shot by Breshears during a scuffle.

Crandell pleaded guilty to a robbery charge and was sentenced in December to 20 years in the Montana State Hospital, where he is being treated for schizophrenia.
