— One of the suspects in a fatal Raleigh home invasion pleaded guilty Thursday.

Jaquan Tryon Dumas, 20, pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit armed robbery.

Dumas and three others – Lenair Bene Omar Moses, Timothy Tyrone Horton and Brandon Michael Jones – were charged with murder for the death of Charmeka Cheymeir Harris, then 25, in her home at 4105 Spring Forest Road in August 2007.

Police said the men stormed into Harris’s apartment, shot her in the stomach and took money and jewelry.

In exchange for the plea, prosecutors dismissed Dumas’s murder charge. A judge sentenced Dumas to 34 to 50 months in prison.
