2 men plead guilty in drive-thru killing

LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Two men have pleaded guilty for their roles as accessories in the 2008 shooting death of a Burger King manager.
Meanwhile, the trial of the accused shooter was reset Monday for March 29.
Trent Isiah Mitchel and Davientray Lee Breaux pleaded guilty on Monday to accessory after the fact to second-degree murder. They pleaded in a pre-sentence investigation.
Probation and parole officers will investigate to recommend sentences.
The trial of Edward Zeno for second-degree murder was continued because of last-minute evidence from a crime lab, his attorney, James Dixon, said.
About 11:40 p.m. Nov. 19, 2008, police say Zeno tried to convince employees at a Burger King restaurant to allow him inside.
James Living Jr., the night manager, refused to let Zeno in because the dining area was closed. Zeno allegedly then placed an order at the drive-thru window and drove to the pickup window, police reported.
Zeno and Living allegedly got into an argument, and Zeno pulled a gun and shot Living, 28, in the chest.
Living died at a local hospital.
He was a father of three who served four years as a combat engineer in the Army.
