NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - The final suspect charged in the 2014 shooting death of 20-year-old Terrance Thornburg has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

The Natchez Democrat reports (https://bit.ly/2g5GjpT ) 35-year-old Alan T. Thomas, of Natchez, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault Wednesday before District Judge Forrest Johnson in Adams County Circuit Court. Thomas was originally indicted for capital murder and conspiracy.
