Two men involved in a northeast Iowa bank robbery and shootout last October have pleaded guilty to Fayette County charges.

Twenty-five-year-old Jeremiah Mumford and 19-year-old William Clayton were charged with first degree robbery, terrorism and two counts of attempted murder.

The charges stem from a bank robbery in Maynard on October 30th, 2012.

While on the run the pair fired on officers and two were hit, neither fatally.

Officials say in exchange for a plea deal, the state dropped the terrorism charge. The pair will be sentenced June 5th.

The state is recommending a 50 year sentence for both.

They also face charges in Bremer County in connection with the police chase.
