A murder defendant ended his own trial Tuesday, by pleading guilty to murder.
Sylvester Garcia pleaded guilty to killing Frank Ramirez in front of his home in the 1300 Block of Itasca in September of 2003. Garcia's plea means he will spend 40-years in prison.
Meanwhile, two other men charged with Ramirez's murder are awaiting trial. Antonio Coronado is scheduled to stand trial in February, while Timothy Garcia's trial is in the midst of being rescheduled.
