Dwayne Bahe Admits To Charges In Fatal Brawl Case
One of two Arizona men accused of being involved in a fight that resulted in the death of another man is admitting to it.
Thirty-six year old Dwayne Bahe has pleaded guilty to two charges of aggravated assault.
Casper Police say in November, there was a fight at a hotel on the 900 block of West Yellowstone.
Gary Jefferson of New Mexico died of injuries sustained in the brawl, while Kameron Begay went to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.
Witnesses told police that all the men involved had been drinking earlier and someone had made disrespectful comments to another.
Bahe originally claimed self-defense, and attempted to leave the state, but before he crossed the state line, he was contacted by investigators, and then turned around, returned to Casper and turned himself in.
As part of a plea deal, prosecutors will seek no more than a three-to-five year prison sentence.
Bahe is free on $40,000 bond and will be sentenced at a later date.
Meanwhile a co-defendant, David Watson Junior, has pleaded not guilty to similar charges connected to this case, and is awaiting trial.
