COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - A Columbus woman has pleaded guilty to killing a 23-year-old Buffalo Wild Wings employee outside the Columbus restaurant in August 2014.

WCBI-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2ksAimd ) that a Lowndes County judge sentenced Takesha Carter on Monday to 40 years in prison for second-degree murder of Britney Foster.

Police say Foster was shot after getting off work at the restaurant.

Investigators told WBCI in 2014 that Carter went into the restaurant after the shooting, told an employee that she wanted to get back a tip she had left earlier that evening, and followed the worker out a side door and fired several shots.

District Attorney Scott Colom says he consulted Foster’s family, and they agreed to the plea deal.
