Man pleads to reduced charge
in death of robbery accomplice
A man facing a murder charge in the death of an accomplice during an attempted robbery pleaded guilty Friday to a reduced charge. Johnathan Dominique Daniel, 20, was sentenced to five years in prison and 10 years probation. Daniel and Kelcee Hollier, 16, of Oklahoma City, were charged with first-degree murder in the Nov. 15 shooting death of Jonathan Braggs, 19, of Edmond. Prosecutors allege the three acted together to rob Davieon Smith, 19, of Oklahoma City, with a gun during a drug transaction. Under state law, homicide charges can be filed when someone is killed during the commission of a felony. Prosecutors amended the murder charge against Daniel to attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon. Hollier's preliminary hearing was continued Friday so she can consider offers from prosecutors. Police filed an arrest warrant in November for Smith, whom witnesses identified as the shooter who killed Braggs and wounded Daniel.
