    A man charged in the robbery and killing of a New Hampshire man on a Nashua bike path has filed notice of a proposed plea agreement. 

    The Telegraph of Nashua reports that lawyers for Jonathan Goff are suggesting a guilty plea and 45-year prison sentence. The charge wasn't known, and prosecutors have not proposed a sentence yet. A hearing date hasn't been scheduled. 

    Last month, Stephen Peno was sentenced to 28 years in prison in the death of 49-year-old Benjamin Marcum. He had pleaded guilty to several charges, including second-degree murder. 

    Prosecutors say Peno and Goff planned to commit a robbery on March 12, 2015, and the two confronted Marcum on a bicycle path. 

    Investigators say Peno beat and kicked Marcum. They say Goff is accused of stabbing Marcum.
