LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two Nevada prison inmates have pleaded guilty to fatally stabbing another inmate in a recreation yard attack in 2016.

Jeremy Nuckles and Justin Muncy pleaded guilty Thursday to second-degree murder in the death of Ralph Goodman at High Desert State Prison outside Las Vegas.

Defense attorneys on Friday characterized the pleas as a fair resolution to the case.

Nuckles is an alleged member of the Aryan Warriors. He admitted to stabbing Goodman and will face at least 11 additional years in prison at sentencing.

Muncy denied membership in the white supremacist gang. He faces another 10 to 25 years under his plea deal.
