Two men who pleaded guilty to a murder conspiracy charge for the near-fatal attack on a former Marine testified Thursday that they never intended to kill the man. John Caravaggio and Scott Smith testified that they thought they were going to be paid $500 to beat Wilbur Constable with baseball bats and had no idea that their partner, Blake Tek Yoon, would pull out a handgun and shoot the man in the back of the head.
