After two days of trial, Nalakeio Bennett has plead guilty to all charges filed against him.

The Vanderburgh County Prosecutor's Office Bennett's plea calls for 20 years for the burglary resulting in bodily injury charge, 20 years on the charge of criminal confinement, and three years on for the theft charge. Officials say all sentences will be served concurrent.

Officials say the criminal gang enhancement will double Bennett's sentence, giving him 40 years in the Indiana Department of Corrections.

The prosecutors office says Bennett has also agreed to truthfully testify against the remaining co-defendants in the case.

Bennett is one of four men accused of breaking into Ira Beumer's house in February 2012. He has plead guilty to burglary resulting in bodily injury, criminal confinement, theft, and criminal gang enhancement.
