Man Pleads Guilty in Wayne Co. Murder For Hire Plot

Sentencing is set for September for one of the four people charged in a Wayne County murder-for-hire plot. 

Davontae Devine, of Henrietta, has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the February 2017 death of Julie Martin at her home in the Town of Ontario. He admitted smothering the woman with a pillow and was paid by the woman's daughter -- Jasmine Harlee. 

Prosecutors say Harlee was trying to collect her mother's life insurance benefit. Harlee, and co-defendant Malquam Drayton have also pleaded guilty. 

Harlee's boyfriend -- Knowlege Crouser -- is scheduled for trial next month.
