CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio- The fourth suspect in the murder of Cleveland Heights restaurant owner Jim Brennan pleaded guilty on Monday.

Paul Turner pleaded to aggravated assault and obstructing justice for his role in Brennan’s death. He also pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery for holding up a gas station later that day.

Sentencing for Turner has not been set. He was scheduled to go to trial on Wednesday after rejecting a plea deal.

Brennan, 61, of Gates Mills, was shot several times inside his restaurant, Brennan’s Colony, on June 30.

On Friday, Paul Turner’s brother, Devonne Turner, pleaded guilty to all charges after not meeting the conditions of a plea deal. He faces up to 200 years in prison. Codefendants Darien Jones, the alleged shooter, and Brandon Jones pleaded guilty earlier this month.
