Freddy Scott Jr. is charged with aiding an offender in the death of 58-year-old Birdell Beeks. Scott’s trial was slated to begin Monday, when it was announced he would enter a plea.

A plea hearing for Scott is now scheduled for Tuesday.

Beeks was killed by gang gunfire in May of 2016.

Joshua Ezeka is charged with second-degree murder for her death. According to officials, Scott told Ezeka where rival gang members would be and drove him from the shooting scene.

Beeks was driving with her granddaughter when he was fatally hit.

  1. Time for a new prosecutor. Amy started this 2nd degree plea. Every Hennepin prosecutor followed her. THERE OUT OF PRISON IN 12 YEARS. This is a joke on society.
