Plea for Charles Butler in Glen Burnie pizzeria murder case

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A Maryland man faces up to 30 years in prison for his role in a shooting at a Glen Burnie pizzeria two years ago.

The 19-year-old Butler entered his plea as he and another teenager were to have stood trial in the November 2010 killing of Misael Flores during a botched robbery at Mr. Wings and Pizza.

A third teenager pleaded guilty in January, and a fourth defendant is scheduled for trial in October.
