THIBODAUX, La. (AP) - Prosecutors say a 22-year-old Thibodaux man accused of pulling the trigger in a 2013 double homicide has pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter and will serve 25 years in prison as part of a plea deal.

The Daily Comet reports (https://bit.ly/20xnBq0) Alfred Starks was charged in the Sept. 25, 2013, shootings of fellow Thibodaux residents Tre Scott and Jordy Williams. Scott was 19 and Williams was a few hours shy of his 26th birthday.

But after key witnesses for the prosecution recanted, refused to testify and claimed to be too high to remember anything, prosecutors offered a plea deal.
