A man hired to kill two people in retaliation for a shooting at Doubles Bar in Hamilton, Ohio pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of aggravated murder. Zachary Harris, 25, of Columbus, Ohio, will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole later in the day. He pleaded guilty after prosecutors took the death penalty off the table. Prosecutors say he was hired to kill two people for $5,000. Harris wasn't the gunman in the drive-by shooting that killed Orlando Gilbert and Todd Berus, but prosecutors say he was the one who made a deal with Michael Grevious, who paid to have them killed.
