The two triggermen accused of the murder of an Atlanta-area bishop's brother have pleaded guilty.

Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said 19-year-old Felton Lovejoy and 18-year-old Montravious Bradley entered their pleas Monday afternoon.

The two teens pleaded guilty to several charges, including felony murder, armed robbery and false imprisonment.

The two shot and killed Jerrick Jackson and robbed his fiancee at gunpoint last May as the couple was exiting Jackson's car at his Lowe Street home. Jackson reportedly tried to stop Bradley, Lovejoy and other armed men from going inside the house where his fiancee's daughter was.

Bradley and Lovejoy shot Jackson several times before fleeing the scene with ATM and credit cards as well as blank checks from the victims.

Police also arrested Geno Lewis, Alejandro Pitts and Demetrius Morgan, and charged them in connection to the crime.

In June, Morgan was found not guilty of murder, but sentenced to 25 years in prison for his conviction on other charges including armed robbery and aggravated assault.

Pitts entered a guilty plea in June and also will be sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Lewis is still awaiting trial.

The trial for Lovejoy and Bradley was scheduled to start Monday, but shortly after jury selection, the two opted to enter guilty pleas after talking with their mothers and lawyers.

Lovejoy and Bradley were sentenced to life in prison.
