LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A suspect charged with gunning down a man during a drug deal outside a New Albany eatery in 2015 has pleaded guilty. 

Keontez Malone now admits to killing 24-year-old Charles Fischbach on Dec. 12, 2015. Fischbach's body was found on the ground near a car in the parking lot of the Waffle House on West Spring Street. 

Authorities say Fischbach, who was from Lanesville, Indiana, was shot when he showed up to meet Malone and Marcus Threatt to sell them marijuana. Prosecutors say Malone pulled the trigger. 

Malone and Marcus Threatt Jr. were arrested and charged with murder. Malone is scheduled to be sentenced at the end of February. 

Threatt is scheduled to stand trial in June. Police also arrested three other suspects in connection with the homicide.
