A Pittsburg man has changed his mind and decided to take a 30-year prison sentence in the shooting death of another Pittsburg man.

Devontay Hunter, 20, accepted the 30-year sentence on Wednesday, according to district court records.

Hunter pleaded guilty in early February but at the time wanted a jury to determine his punishment. That jury punishment hearing was scheduled for April.

Hunter was one of four people charged in the murder of Kendrick Lemichel Jackson. Xavier Mumphrey pleaded guilty in January and accepted a 47-year prison sentence. Byrd said he was the lone shooter in the murder.

In a previous statement, Byrd said all four defendants went to Jackson’s home to buy marijuana. After the shooting, they left the scene and went to Lone Star, where they divided the stolen marijuana.

Decorian Robbins is serving a 40-year prison sentence for the crime. Alize McFall’s case is pending.
