TERRE HAUTE — Plea agreements have been tendered in a November 2013 homicide case with multiple defendants.

Three people have been charged with felony murder in the Nov. 8 shooting death of Ronald Arrowsmith.

Marteail D. Brewer, 31, is now set to return to Vigo Superior Court 1 on May 12. He has been offered a 25-year sentence in a plea agreement, according to Vigo County Prosecutor Terry Modesitt, adding that all defendants in the case have been made plea offers.

Amber Marie Reynolds, 33, is set to return to Division 1 court on May 23. She made a court appearance on Friday.

Damien D. Tyler, 34, has a pretrial hearing set for May 20 in Vigo Superior Court 5, and a trial date of June 17.

In addition to felony murder, the three defendants were also charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery and attempted robbery. Both Brewer and Tyler also were charged with carrying a handgun without a license. And, Brewer was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a serious violent felon, while Reynolds has been charged with altering the scene of a death and attempted obstruction of justice.

Meanwhile, defendant Cody Thompson, 29, signed a plea agreement on Thursday in Division 1 court. A change of plea hearing in his case is st for May 15. Thompson faces two counts of carrying a handgun without a license, as both a class-A misdemeanor and as a class-C felony because of a prior felony conviction.
