His wife, Charlene Childers, pleaded guilty to manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon in connection to Niles' death. Prosecutors do not believe she was involved in Washburn's death. 

A third suspect, Bron Bohlar, pleaded guilty to conspiracy, admitting to renting a car for Dean.

If convicted, Dean could face life in prison without parole. 

Twelve jurors have been seated. 

Opening statements in the trial will begin Monday.
