ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A 22-year-old man faces 25 to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to second-degree murder for his involvement in the 2013 fatal shooting of a University of Michigan medical student.
Shaquille Jones entered the plea Monday. The Ann Arbor News reports that under the terms of the deal, Jones will be sentenced to between 25 and 50 years in prison on Jan. 21.
He previously stopped cooperating with prosecutors in September and had an earlier plea deal withdrawn that would have sent him to prison for at least 18½ years.
Jones will be available to testify against 21-year-old Joei Jordan, whose trial begins next week. A third defendant, 22-year-old Dajeon Franklin, was convicted by a jury last year and is imprisoned.
Twenty-five-year-old Paul DeWolf, a Schoolcraft native, was attending medical school on an Air Force scholarship when he was shot during an armed robbery at the medical fraternity where he lived.
