LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — One of two Kansas men accused in a 2019 double shooting in a Lawrence park that injured two brothers will get prison time after pleading no contest last month to attempted first-degree murder.

Sahavione Caraway, 19, Topeka also pleaded no contest to aggravated robbery on Sept. 13. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped additional counts of each charge.

The minimum sentence for the attempted murder charge is about 12 years in prison. Caraway is set to be sentenced next Wednesday. Prosecutors say Caraway and another man, Benson Edwards Jr., were 17 when they shot two brothers, ages 18 and 16, in Holcom Park on March 19, 2019, seriously injuring both. Edwards has pleaded not guilty and will face trial in January.
