Third suspect in bar owner's murder reaches plea deal

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) - It took seven hours behind closed doors Friday, but one of two brothers charged in the death of Cleveland Heights bar owner, Jim Brennan, made a deal.

Brennan was murdered during a robbery at Brennan's Colony on June 30, 2014.

Four suspects were arrested and charged in his death: brothers Paul and Devonne Turner, and brothers Brandon and Darien Jones.

Paul Turner rejected a plea deal Friday. He could face up to 50 years for the crimes he is accused of.

Devonne Turner pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated murder, one count of murder, three counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of aggravated burglary, two counts of felonious assault and four counts of kidnapping. Turner also pleaded guilty to the indictments for two other aggravated robbery cases, according to the Cuyahoga County prosecutor.

That is the same list of charges against the Jones brothers, who have also pleaded guilty. The Jones are expected to testify against Paul Turner, whose trial is slated to begin on March 25. Turner is charged with obstructing justice, tampering with evidence and having weapons under disability.
