 LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A man charged with fatally shooting a University of Kentucky football player as he celebrated his 21st birthday on a porch near campus pleaded guilty to manslaughter Monday.
In the plea agreement, Shane Ragland was sentenced to time served - eight years in prison and 14 months of house arrest - for the 1994 shooting of Trent DiGiuro.
Ragland was accused of targeting DiGiuro in revenge for keeping him out of a fraternity. He was convicted of murder in 2002 and sentenced to 30 years in prison, but he won a new trial after the state Supreme Court agreed that the prosecutor had made an inappropriate comment during trial and used inadmissible evidence concerning a bullet.
Ragland would have faced a retrial but pleaded guilty to manslaughter instead.
Under the terms of the plea deal filed in Fayette Circuit Court on Monday, Ragland must remain on electronic monitoring until Aug. 30.
Calls to Ragland's attorney, Steven Romines, and Fayette Commonwealth's attorney Ray Larson were not immediately returned.
