2 Ky. men plead guilty in Pendleton drug case

Two Kentucky men pleaded guilty Friday to charges stemming from a drug deal that led to a shooting in Pendleton County in March, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Kentucky.

Kyle Glass, 19, of Union and Daniel Davis, 46, of Erlanger pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance. Glass also pleaded guilty to carrying a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking.

In March, Glass met a man in Pendleton County to sell pills, according to investigators. Glass brought a handgun to protect himself, the attorney's office said. The man was shot twice after he attempted to rob Glass. Glass was shot once during a struggle.

Davis has admitted to supplying Oxycontin pills to Glass, knowing he intended to sell them.

Davis and Glass are scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court for sentencing at noon on April 20.
