In July of 2017, professional MMA fighter and member of American Top Team Aaron Rajman was killed in a home invasion by three people.
A report from The Sun Sentinel is reporting that two of the three people charged with Rajman’s murder have reached plea deals. Summer Church and Jace Swinton both received ten year jail terms after pleading guilty to second-degree murder, with the deal being reached with Palm Beach County (Florida) prosecutors.
When the plea deal was reached, such charges as armed home invasion robbery with a firearm were dropped. Church and Swinton will also have to serve a ten year probation sentence after the jail term ends, but in their probation terms aren’t fulfilled, both Church and Swinton could face a life sentence in prison.
Due to the plea agreements, both Church and Swinton will testify against the third person who allegedly committed the murder, Roberto Ortiz, at a later date. The prosecutors came to the plea agreements after receiving blessings from members of the Rajman family.
Rajman earned a 2-3-0 as a professional MMA fighter, with those wins coming over the duo of Anthony Retic and Rusty Crowder. Rajman's last professional MMA bouts came at Adrenalina Pura: Barbosa vs. Pinargota in October of 2016, as the fighter suffered a second round submission loss to Cristhian Rivas.
