ST. PAUL, Alta. — One of the men convicted of killing an innocent Saskatoon woman in a case of mistaken identity has entered a plea of guilty to second-degree murder in a separate Alberta death.

Randy O'Hagan, 25, unexpectedly pleaded guilty this week for his role in the death of Bryan Gower, 35.

His three-week trial had been scheduled to get underway in St. Paul, Alta.

O'Hagan had already been sentenced to life in prison with no parole for 25 years after being convicted of the first-degree murder of Lorry Santos, a mother of four.

His trial was told it was a contract killing, and O'Hagan had been ordered to kill a former member of the White Boy Posse who had left the gang.

Instead, he went to the wrong address and shot and killed Santos, 34, as she stood inside her home.

This week, O'Hagan was given another life sentence and an additional 11 years of parole ineligibility.

On Sept. 25, 2012, Gower's body was discovered on a rural road near Kitscoty, Alta., after police were called out for gunfire complaints.
