Daniel Lee Sandoval, 20, also pleaded guilty to 35 other charges on Tuesday after an agreement was reached with prosecutors.

According to Sandoval's attorney, prosecutors agreed to dismiss 48 other charges against him in exchange for his guilty pleas to mostly nonviolent crimes.

Police say Hector Aguirre held onto his van as the teens attempted to steal it in September 2016.

Court documents say Sandoval is the third of five charged in the Aguirre's death to reach plea agreements with prosecutors.
