LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Three of five suspects in Hardin County accused of kidnapping and nearly killing a woman have taken plea deals. 

Dealynn O'Connor says five people attacked her back in January at a home in Radcliff then took her to the Brandenburg Bridge and told her to jump.

O'Connor said they told her to jump, and when she wouldn't, they stabbed her and left her to die. 

On Tuesday in court, Schawn Millin, Angela New and Christopher Deaton pleaded guilty. In exchange for their plea, the attempted murder charges are dropped. They will now testify against Trevor Brown, the fifth suspect. That trial is scheduled to begin Monday.

Millin and New pleaded guilty to criminal facilitation to kidnapping and robbery. If the judge deems her to have testified truthfully, she'll serve four years in prison. New could have her kidnapping charge withdrawn after she testifies.

Deaton also pleaded guilty to criminal facilitation to kidnapping, but his robbery charge was dropped. If the judge deems him to have testified truthfully, he'll serve five years in prison.

Marc McCoy and Brown, the two other suspects in the case, did not put in a plea. Their attorney filed a motion for a continuance.

O'Connor was shot and killed by a different suspect six months later.
