One of several murder suspects admits to role in gym owner's shooting

The suspects arrested in connection to Lengel's robbery and murder.

One of the half dozen men charged in the robbery and shooting death of a South Toledo gym owner has confessed to his role in the crime.

According to court documents, 34-year-old Matthew Managhan pleaded guilty on Tuesday to involuntary manslaughter with a gun specification and aggravated robbery in the November 19th death of 57-year-old Joseph "Joe" Lengel, Jr.

The Toledo Blade says that, in court, Managhan admitted to making arrangements for 3 of his co-defendants to rob a person.

Managhan believed the intended victim would be carrying cash and drugs while on the premises of a repair shop located next to Lengel's gym.

The 34-year-old also confessed to supplying the handgun for the crime.

Prosecutors say that Lengel was not the intended victim.
