(SEYMOUR) - A 33-year-old Jennings County man accused of robbing and murdering a Seymour man in April 2015 has entered a guilty plea that could see him spend as much as 20 years in prison.

The plea agreement, entered late Wednesday in Jackson Circuit Court, calls for Daniel L. Combs to plead guilty to two felonies in connection with the death of 42-year-old Gilbert Engle.

Two other North Vernon residents, 32-year-old Jessica L. Jarrell and 25-year-old Andrea M. Hollin, have yet to stand trial after their arrests in connection with Engle's death.

Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott says investigators believe Combs shot and killed Engle during an incident at Engle's second-floor apartment in the 200 block of North Chestnut Street after a night of using heroin and other drugs.

Engle's body was found by his roommate.
