A man accused of murder pleaded guilty in court Tuesday.

Tommy Wright faces 30 to 40 years in prison when he is sentenced in April.

Wright is one of three people who were accused in the death of Miguel Barajas, 47, at his home in Widefield on February 13 last year.

Investigators said Barajas daughter, Dawn Richburg, 33, called 911 and said she found the door wide open and the home burglarized.

Barajas body was found inside. The death was ruled a homicide.

Richburg, her mother Sandra Barajas, 52, and Tommy Wright, 34, were charged with Barajas' murder. All three were charged with first-degree murder, criminal solicitation and criminal conspiracy.

Wright pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of 2nd degree murder Tuesday.
