After a mistrial for the woman accused of killing 17-year-old, pleads guilty

After a mistrial for the woman accused of killing 17-year-old Evan Colquitt on Sharondale Road in 2013, Colquitt’s family says Adrienne Jackson has now accepted a plea deal to a lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter.

This all unfolded Wednesday morning, after a hung jury back in April.

Jackson was set to face trial again on Nov. 2, but Jackson’s Attorney said her client pleaded guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter and received a 10 year sentence.
