The suspect who authorities say shot and killed a Quincy man back in January admitted guilt in court Tuesday morning.
Vince Carter, 45, pled guilty to second degree murder in connection with the January shooting death of Terry Williams. Two other charges including first degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon were dropped as part of a deal with the Adams County State's Attorney Office.
The incident occurred Jan. 3 when authorities say Carter killed Williams with a small handgun after an altercation. Carter fled the scene and was apprehended the following day without incident.
Carter is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 25. State's Attorney Jon Barnard says he faces up to 20 years in prison and will have to serve a minimum of 50 percent.
