— A woman has pleaded guilty to accessory charges in the death of a North Carolina A&T football player last year.

The News & Record of Greensboro reported that 21-year-old Lenneek Marie Thompson of Summerfield pleaded guilty this week under an agreement with prosecutors.

Twenty-two-year-old Jermane Darnell Clark was shot in the chest and killed at his off-campus apartment in Greensboro in April 2014.

Thompson pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact to armed robbery and two other charges not connected to Clark’s death. Prosecutors dropped three other charges.

She will be sentenced to between 18 and 31 months and also must testify against two co-defendants if requested by prosecutors.
