A woman has pleaded guilty to reduced charges in the shooting deaths of two men outside a Mid-Michigan Wal-Mart store and agreed to testify against two co-defendants.

Erin Marie Mongar, 35 of Grand Rapids pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder Tuesday, the Shiawassee County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Prosecutors have agreed to dismiss two counts of first-degree murder and other charges.

Police said Mongar drove the getaway car in the murders of 31-year-old Joseph Carson and 39-year-old Anthony Hammond, both of Flint.

Their bodies were found in January outside a Caledonia Township Wal-Mart.

Police said the slayings stemmed from a deal to sell marijuana that was arranged online via Craigslist.

Otis Smith, 31, and 23-year-old Anthony Holloway, both of Grand Rapids, face charges including felony murder, armed robbery and conspiracy.
