Munn entered a guilty plea of murder with a possible sentence ranging from 45 to 65 years. Three other charges were dropped, including a felony robbery charge and two separate charges on burglary and marijuana possession from an unrelated incident.

His sentencing hearing is scheduled for December 1, 2014.

A second person was also charged in the Hall murder. Shane A. Williams, 19, was booked on murder and felony robbery on June 5, 2014. He is currently being held without bond and remains in custody.

According to the prosecutor’s office, witnesses claim that Williams contacted Nathan Hall through Facebook to meet for a marijuana deal, but that Williams and Jermaine Munn allegedly planned to rob Nathan Hall at the meeting location. Munn allegedly shot Hall at the meeting, with both suspects being accused of stealing cash and marijuana.

Williams has a record date of November 18, 2014 and a trial date of December 15, 2014, before Judge Hurley.
