WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A 25-year-old Wichita man has pleaded guilty in the slaying of another man who was held down as his throat was slashed.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/17VQ6S5) Caesar K. Louis pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder, aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary in the Aug. 4, 2012, death of Phem Xiong.

Louis, who was scheduled to go on trial Monday on a first-degree murder charge, will be sentenced Oct. 1.

Vat Sana Khamvongsa testified in December he was with Louis and a third man, Jerry Thatch, when they went into Xiong's home after a night in Wichita's Old Town. Khamvongsa said Jerry Thatch held Xiong's feet while Louis cut his throat.

Thatch's murder trial begins Oct. 15; Khamvongsa is to be sentenced on a lesser charge the same day.
