Man Changes Plea To Guilty In Connection With Dublin Gas Station Clerk's Slaying
A man charged in the murder of a gas station clerk changed his plea.
In exchange for a guilty plea, prosecutors said that 18-year-old Austin Cusey would not have to testify against his alleged accomplices in three February crimes.
Cusey, along with Jeffery Collins and Eddie Murphy, faced charges in connection with Mohamed Hassan's shooting death, as well as a restaurant robbery and possessing stolen firearms from the Powder Room in Powell.
Cusey, 18 and Collins, 22, are charged in connection with the Feb. 13 death of Hassan, who was found shot to death inside the Sunoco gas station, located at 201 W. Bridge St.
Cusey's sentencing was scheduled for Dec. 3. If convicted, he could face a maximum sentence of life without parole plus 74 years.
Murphy was indicted in April in connection with Hassan's death. Murphy confessed to being the gunman.
