Two men plead guilty to perjury charge
DENVER -- Two men who refused to testify in the trial of a man convicted in the death of Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams have pleaded guilty to being an accessory to perjury.
As part of a plea agreement, 21-year-old Kataina "Markie" Jackson-Keeling and 22-year-old Mario Anderson admitted they were in contempt of the court. They pleaded guilty Tuesday.
Denver prosecutors had accused them of lying to a Denver grand jury investigating Williams' death in a drive-by shooting early on New Year's Day 2007.
Jurors convicted Willie Clark in March of first-degree murder and sentenced him to life in prison plus 1,152 years.
Jackson-Keeling and Anderson are free on bond. They are due to be sentenced June 7.
