A guilty plea in connection with a Burlington murder.

Wednesday in federal court, Richard Monroe, 25, pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges and firing the shot that killed Kevin DeOliveira in January 2015.

Prosecutors say Monroe killed DeOliveira at the victim's Green Street apartment in a dispute over money.

The plea deal calls for Monroe to spend the next 25 years behind bars.
