It sounds like his friends rolled over on him. Murder One is an even worse charge in Massachusetts than some other states. They don't have the death penalty, so a conviction on a Murder One charge is automatic life without chance of parole. To charge him with First degree Murder, the prosecution must feel they have a pretty airtight case.
