KELSO, Wash. (AP) — The second of three Vancouver men accused in the killing of a Kelso convenience store clerk has pleaded guilty.

The Daily News reports 24-year-old Erkinson Bossy pleaded guilty last week in Cowlitz County Superior Court to murder, robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm in the death of 30-year-old Kayla Chapman.

Court documents say police believe he and two other men went to Kelso Jan. 22 to buy drugs and, when unsuccessful, looked for a store to rob.

Authorities say Bossy also led authorities on a chase involving gunfire in February from Vancouver to Portland, Oregon, when police tried to pull his car over.

D’Anthony Williams pleaded not guilty to shooting Chapman in February.

Nenemeny Ekiek pleaded guilty in April to murder, robbery and possession of methamphetamine charges.

Court documents say Bossy and Ekiek’s sentencing will be delayed until after Williams’ trial in December.
