 SS)--Two people who were charged with murder and conspiracy in connection with a home invasion on Jan. 31 waived their preliminary hearings on Monday. 20 year-old Damon Lee Robinson and 18 year-old Rico Lamar Stennis both of Enid, are each facing a single count of first-degree murder and a single count of conspiracy. The charges accuse the two of acting in concert with 14-year-old Ezavier Condit and causing Condit’s death during the commission of a first-degree burglary, and is punishable by life, life without parole or death. Enid News and Eagle reports Robinson waived his rights to a preliminary hearing so he might enter a plea bargain of no more than 25 years for the murder charge and two months or less for the conspiracy charge. Stennis also waived his preliminary hearing so he might enter a plea to the charges of murder and conspiracy at a later time. Stennis’ counsel also filed a motion on Dec. 21 to certify him as a juvenile and/or youthful offender, according to court documents. Stennis was 17 when the crime occurred. A third person, Olivia Jaid Hollis-Boegle, also has been charged. In August, she was charged with one count of second-degree murder, one count of maintaining a dwelling where drugs are sold, kept or used, one count of possessing a firearm during commission of a felony and one count of employing minors in drug crimes.
