Man pleads guilty to fatal shooting

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

One of two people charged in connection with a double homicide in Allentown says he's guilty.

Tykweis Wade pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of third degree murder for the deaths of Steven Santiago and Adrian Ramirez.

The other defendant in the case -- John Boyd -- is scheduled to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

Police say Boyd and Wade shot the victims to death in front of their home on Hall Street in December of 2011.

Police say a dispute over an affair led to the shooting.
