One of the defendants accused of killing 24-year-old Tyrell Johnson-Woods accepted a plea before Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Yolanda A. Tanner on July 25. 

Defendant Lundyne Oldes accepted a plea for first-degree murder and firearm use in a felony violent crime. The exact details of the plea were not discussed at Tuesday’s proceeding. 

More information will be shared at the defendant’s sentencing hearing on Nov. 9 before Judge Tanner. 

Stand-in attorney Deborah Levi represented the defendant for the proceeding. 

According to the Maryland Judiciary website, Oldes, 31, was charged with first-degree murder, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, firearm use in a felony violent crime, and firearm possession with a felony conviction in connection with a June 18, 2021 incident. 

Charging documents state that on June 18, 2021, Oldes and her co-defendants Pailin and Burrows approached Johnson-Woods in an attempt to rob him. A witness told Baltimore City Police officers that the victim was shot multiple times by the three defendants. The witness was able to identify Oldes as one of the four suspects. 

Co-defendant Devon Pailin had his trial set for Sept. 5 on March 3.

Co-defendant had her sentencing postponed to Dec. 18 on May 10.
