NATCHEZ, Mississippi — An Adams County man pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, but will remain free on bail until he is sentenced.
The Natchez Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/18xn8Or) 49-year-old Marvin Anthony Watson entered the plea Monday in front of Judge Forrest Johnson in the May 18 shooting of 32-year-old Peter Jones III. Jones died several days after the incident.
Jones was shot at least three times at a Natchez nightclub.
Johnson said because the matter did not go to trial and because of the differing stories of what happened he would order a pre-sentencing investigation before Watson was given a final sentence.
