MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A man who pepper-sprayed a Missoula convenience store employee and a customer during a March armed robbery in which both victims were shot pleaded guilty.

The Missoulian reports 19-year-old Ivory Brien originally was charged with two felonies for accountability for deliberate homicide in connection with a March 6 incident at the South Avenue Market. The plea agreement reached last week changed those charges to a felony for conspiracy to commit robbery, as well as a pair of assault misdemeanors.

Brien pleaded guilty to the new charges Thursday in Great Falls.

A sentencing date has not been set. Missoula County prosecutor Mac Bloom says Cascade County District Court Judge Gregory Pinski wanted to take time to decide whether to come to Missoula or have the sentencing hearing in Great Falls.
