HAMILTON, OH (FOX19/AP) -

One of the five suspect arrested for a fatal home invasion in Fairfield has pleaded guilty.

Attorney Kyle Napier for Joseph Goodin, 26, of Middletown says there was no intent to kill Julian Slaven, 19, and that Goodin isn't sure how the fatal shot got fired.

The Hamilton JournalNews reports (http://bit.ly/YIqZAQ ) that Goodin will face 18 years to life in prison on the murder charge and another 11 years on robbery and burglary charges. Sentencing in Butler County will be May 20.

Christia Frymire, Anthony Givens, Misty Williams and Jerry Eacholes face trial on charges of murder, aggravated burglary and robbery.

Even though Goodin admitted firing the shot, prosecutors say the other defendants face murder charges because they plotted together the robbery and burglary that resulted in the killing of Slaven.
