Three more guilty pleas in slaying of N.C. man

MERIDIAN —     Lauderdale County District Attorney Bilbo Mitchell says three people have pleaded guilty to their roles in the 2011 slaying of a North Carolina man.

    Mitchell said that Alexander Jenkins was sentenced this week to 20 years for manslaughter with five years suspended, according to an AP report. Mitchell says Marquez Gordon was sentenced to 20 years with 15 years suspended for allowing his car to be used in the incident.

    Mitchell says Latoya Tubbs received a five-year suspended sentence for being an accessory after the fact.

    The triggerman, Lamontaye Marsh, was earlier sentenced to life in prison in the death of 45-year-old Thomas Eugene Tedeschi of Fayetteville, N.C

    Tedeschi's body was found along a road south of Meridian in August of 2011. Authorities say Tedeschi was last seen leaving a nightclub.
