Delaware prosecutors have dropped homicide charges against one of two men accused in the death of a taxi driver, in exchange for a guilty plea to lesser charges.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports that Cristofer Jackson admitted in New Castle County Superior Court on Wednesday to charges of robbery and conspiracy.

Jackson and another man, Deronta T. Persons, had been charged in the March 2011 killing of Wilmington cab driver Nahum Dalmace.

Persons is scheduled to stand trial in November on charges including murder and robbery.

Jackson admitted in court that he and Persons agreed to rob a cab driver after their own car broke down in Wilmington.
