Another Wichita teen pleaded guilty to robbing and beating a Riverside couple with a baseball bat on Thursday morning. Kevin Johnson's trial was scheduled to begin Thursday, but he pleaded guilty to burglary, robbery, and battery instead.
Prosecutors say he and another teen broke into a Riverside home in December 2008 and robbed the couple inside.
Sandy Seemuth says the robbery started as a simple knock at the door, and the teens rushed inside when she answered it.
"I'm still scared," Seemuth said after Johnson's guilty plea. "I mean, there's a knock at the door and then I just kind of freeze. I have to tell myself, 'Remember, go look out the window before you open the door.'"
Seemuth still says she saw three people come into her home, but a third suspect in the robbery has never been identified. She was especially hoping for a guilty verdict for Johnson because she says he's the one she remembers using the baseball bat.
