It happened along Prospect Ave. on Erie's east side,not long after the two left nearby Bogey's Tavern, investigators said..

Lyons was set to enter a plea deal with prosecutors in October, but he changed his mind at the last minute.

Lyons was one of two Erie murder suspects found hiding in a home in Detroit, Michigan.
