FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - One suspect connected to the double murder on Third Street in April of this year has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

32-year-old Marina Zrnic was arrested in the shooting that killed Jennifer Ann Dray, 40, and Amanda Lee Shroyer, 30, at a home in the 800 block of Third Street on April 20, 2021. Zrnic gave police Ronald Price’s name; saying she brought him to the home as a “bodyguard” and that he actually shot the women. Price was arrested and charged with two counts of murder and felony murder, among other charges.

In court on Monday, Zrnic entered a guilty plea for felony attempted robbery, which comes with a recommended sentence of 15 years, 10 of which to be served behind bars. She was originally charged with felony murder and robbery.

A sentencing hearing is set for March 4, 2022.
