Carter plead guilty to three counts of criminal facilitation to murder and one count of tampering with physical evidence. The Assistant Commonwealth Attorney's Office said because Carter is a youthful offender he is being placed in the custody of the KY Department of Juvenile Justice until his 18th birthday. At that time, he will be sentenced as an adult.

In the plea agreement, the Commonwealth Attorney's office recommended a sentence of 10 years if he is sentenced to serve in prison or 20 years if granted probation. The Commonwealth Attorney's office say they will be objecting to probation at that time.

Carter admitted to helping Brice Rhodes and others stab Ordway and Gordon on May 22, and then cleaning up the scene with bleach. He was also in a vehicle with Rhodes on May 4 when Rhodes mistook Christopher Jones for a man who had a price on his head, according to the plea sheets. 
Rhodes shot and killed Jones, according to the court records. 

Part of the plea entails that Carter will have to testify against the other three co-defendants.
