Man pleads guilty in cemetery killing

NATCHEZ, Miss. —  

A 20-year-old man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the May 2011 Natchez City Cemetery shooting death of a Natchez teenager.

The Natchez Democrat reports Keldrick Washington was set to go to trial Tuesday for the shooting death of 18-year-old Quinton Brown, but entered his plea Monday.

Washington was sentenced by Judge Forrest Johnson to 15 years prison, though he will only be required to serve five of those years. The remainder of the sentence will be served on post-release probation, with five of those years supervised and five of them unsupervised.

Washington's co-defendant, 22-year-old Adrian Williams, was tried separately, convicted and sentenced to life in prison on Nov. 15.
