Rodolfo "Chino" Correa Villagomez entered into a plea agreement Tuesday in connection to illegally possessing firearms as an illegal alien.

Villagomez pleaded guilty in U.S. Federal Court in Elkins to the charge.  He will spend a maximum of 10 years in prison and have to pay fine of up to $250,000. As part of his plea agreement, Villagomez will be required to cooperate with the United States Attorney's Office and may be subject to a polygraph test. He will be sentenced at a later date.

Villagomez is also facing a first degree murder charge in the death of Joshua Oberg in Upshur County Circuit Court. Witnesses testified that Villagomez paid Jesse Lee Heater $5,000 to kill Oberg because he thought Oberg was having an affair with his wife.

The witness said Heater shot and stabbed Oberg and that Heater and Robert Siron buried the body.
