YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A Youngstown man is set to enter a plea in the case of a man who was murdered while trying to sell a video game system.

A judgement entry filed in Mahoning County Common Pleas court indicates that  23-year-old Reginald Whitfield will enter a plea and be sentenced on Tuesday morning.

The East Lucius Avenue man is one of two suspects accused of fatally shooting 27-year old Michael Abighanem on April 27, 2012.

Investigators say Abighanem was shot at a Silliman Street home where he had gone to sell a video game system and laptop.

Whitfield was indicted on charges of aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and tampering with evidence.

19-year-old Kyle Patrick is also charged in the case. He was only 17 at the time of the murder, but is scheduled to go on trial Monday as an adult on the same charges.
