Another of the defendants charged with stealing vehicles and a safe with vehicle titles from a local automotive business last January pleaded guilty Thursday in Freeborn County District Court.

Jessica Mulholland pleaded guilty to one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle tied to the incident Jan. 2, 2019.

Prosecutors said Mulholland, co-defendants Destiny Turvold, Jamie Kujak and Casey Jo Eggum went to Mason Auto Sales, 86974 Freeborn County Road 46, to steal vehicles and titles.

Eggum was also charged with setting the business building on fire to cover his fingerprints and any evidence left behind. He pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree arson  in exchange for numerous other counts being dismissed.

Court documents state four vehicles were stolen, valued at between $2,995 and $8,995 each.

Kujak also previously pleaded guilty, and Turvold is slated for a jury trial Feb. 18.
