CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Three people will be sentenced in May on charges stemming from the slaying of a Charleston man.

Media outlets report that 27-year-old John Michael Thurmond pleaded guilty on Monday to second-degree murder. His sentencing is set for May 20 in Kanawha County Circuit Court.

A May 13 sentencing is set for 20-year-old Anthony Harriman. Harriman pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in February.

Twenty-two-year-old Erica Lynn Cogar pleaded guilty last week to accessory after the fact to murder. She's scheduled to be sentenced on May 27.

The charges stem from the death of 51-year-old Martin Snodgrass. Snodgrass' body was found in the Kanawha River near Magic Island in July 2014.
