ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Eastern Michigan University football player Demarius Reed.
Twenty-year-old Kristopher Pratt of Detroit entered the plea during a hearing Friday in Washtenaw County Trial Court.
The Ann Arbor News reports (http://bit.ly/1u0bvsE ) the plea deal calls for an 18- to 30-year prison term for Pratt, who agreed to testify against 21-year-old co-defendant Ed Thomas, whose trial begins Monday.
Pratt also had been scheduled for trial Monday.
Pratt told Judge Donald Shelton that he and Thomas followed Reed into an apartment building last fall with the intention of robbing the 20-year-old wide receiver.
A defense lawyer has said there isn't enough evidence to show Thomas committed the crime.
Pratt told the judge he shot Reed twice in the side.
