One of the five thugs who coldly shot and killed former Washington Redskin Sean Taylor during a 2007 robbery of the football star's Miami home is trying to withdraw his guilty plea.

Venjah Hunte will appear in a Miami court today to flip on his deal, which would've put him behind bars for no more than 29 years. Hunte could face a life sentence if he withdraws his guilty plea.

Hunte, 21, and four accomplices killed the 24-year-old Taylor during a home invasion and robbery attempt. All five suspects are from the Fort Myers area and all are being held in jail without bail.

The others charged in the killing -- Charles Wardlow, 19, Jason Scott Mitchell, 21, Timmy Lee Brown, 17, and Eric Rivera, 19 -- have pled not guilty. Their trial is expected to begin in January.

Taylor helped lead the University of Miami to a 2001 National Championship before becoming an All-Pro safety with the Washington Redskins.

 

Maybe now we can seek a death penalty...
