MEDFORD, Ore. — A teenage girl accused of plotting to murder her father with two teenage boys who carried out the deed has changed her plea to "guilty," according to the Jackson County District Attorney's office.
"Ellen Rose Friar changed her plea in Jackson County Circuit Court. Ms. Friar entered a plea of guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and a no contest plea to conspiracy to commit burglary in the first degree," the DA's office said in a statement.
The then-15-year-old Friar is accused of helping her 19-year-old boyfriend Gavin MacFarlane and their friend Russel Jones II to murder her father, Aaron Friar, in October of 2017.
The trio are also implicated in a plot to kill Jones II's father — an act which was never carried out.
MacFarlane pleaded guilty to charges of murder, tampering with evidence, and conspiracy to commit murder in October of 2018.
"Due to Ms. Friar’s future sentencing and the case against Mr. Jones II no further facts will be released," the DA's office said. "Mr. Jones II trial date for February 4, 2019 has been cancelled and a new date will be determined at a later time."
