OKLAHOMA CITY – Four people accused of beating, torturing, and tattooing "RAPEST" on an 18- year-old Del City man's forehead have reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

Zachary Chase Provence, Richard Dellert, Kim Kirchler, and Lorena Amanda Hodges are accused of attacking Stetson Johnson in April and leaving him for dead at Eagle Lake. At the time, investigators said the beating was so brutal they were surprised Johnson survived.
