MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Two Montgomery men pleaded guilty to a 2015 murder that stemmed from an attempted robbery.

In September 2015, Martavius Tyus and Tarick Moore were a part of a planned robbery that resulted in the death of then 20-year-old Dundrell Young. Tyus, Moore and two others had attempted to rob Young in a Burger King parking lot on East South Boulevard. Young ended up being shot, and he died later at the scene.

Tyus and Moore each face a sentence of 20 years to life in prison.

"I am appreciative of the efforts of Deputy District Attorneys Michele Davidson and Scott Green of the Violent Crime Unit. I also want to thank Investigators J.P. Wilson and John Brown, and Montgomery Police Detective R.K. Dabney for their outstanding work," said Montgomery County District Attorney Daryl Bailey.

The other two suspects, Jordan Graham and Travon Williams, remain charged in the case. Their trials are pending.
