OLATHE, Kan. (AP) -- A 22-year-old Kansas man is facing life in prison after pleading guilty to premeditated first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of another man in September.
The Kansas City Star reports Christopher Lamont Shelton-Jenkins on Tuesday admitted shooting 21-year-old Brandon Holmes at an Overland Park apartment.
Prosecutors say the Kansas City, Kansas, man was a roommate of Shelton-Jenkins' wife, who found the body after the shooting. Shelton-Jenkins told investigators he wanted to kill Holmes but someone beat him to it.
He later told detectives he had set up the killing but was not the one who pulled the trigger.
A gun matched to bullets at the crime scene was found later hidden on property near the Shelton-Jenkins family home.
He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 3.
