MEDFORD, Ore. -- Today a teenage girl accused of plotting to murder her father with two teenage boys will be sentenced. 

Ellen Rose Friar pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit murder and no contest to conspiracy to commit burglary back in January 2019. 

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.

MacFarlane and Jones are accused of killing Aaron Friar by beating him to death while he was sleeping. 

The trio are also implicated in a plot to kill Jones II's father — an act which was never carried out.
