Travis Doniel Wesley, 31, of Demopolis pled guilty to manslaughter Monday in the shooting death of Lequinton Lomax.

Wesley, whose plea was entered while officials were in the process of striking a jury in view of a forthcoming murder trial, accepted a plea agreement that carries with it a sentence of more than 22 years.

“He pled guilty to the amended charge of manslaughter and accepted a 22-year sentence,” District Attorney Greg Griggers said. “He was already incarcerated because we revoked his probation that he had gotten out on in a drug case that he pled guilty to back in 2013 prior to the shooting.”

Wesley pled guilty to shooting Lomax in the late night hours of Oct. 26, 2013.
