NEW YORK (AP) — A man accused of gunning down radio and TV personality DJ Megatron in New York City has pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter.
The Daily News reports that 22-year-old William Williams entered the plea on Tuesday. He had faced a murder trial. Prosecutors say he'll be sentenced to 21 years in prison.
DJ Megatron was shot in the chest while walking to a store near his Staten Island home in March of 2011.
A second man, Richard Cromwell, was also charged in the shooting and is due in court on Feb. 27. His attorney has said he's not guilty.
