SEATTLE (AP) - A 21-year-old man who served time for the 2008 death of a street performer has pleaded guilty in an unrelated fatal shooting at a Bellevue bar.

Ja’Mari Alexander Jones pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in King County Superior Court on Wednesday.

The Seattle Times says (https://is.gd/5GmVrF ) prosecutors plan to recommend an 18-year prison term when Jones is sentenced on Jan. 9.

DeShawn Milliken was fatally shot on Christmas Eve 2012 at Munchbar in Bellevue Square Mall as hundreds of people, including some Seahawks players, celebrated a football victory. Jones was arrested Jan. 2 in a stolen car in Lakewood.

Jones was one of three juveniles convicted of manslaughter in 2009 in the killing of Ed McMichael, a Seattle street musician known as Tuba Man.
