ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Moultrie man's home invasion/murder re-trial was cancelled after he pleaded guilty to burglary.

Anthony Thompson was initially charged in a home invasion that resulted in the death of 22-year old Diego Diaz-Gomez in October 2006. His first trial on the charges ended with a hung jury. As he was about to stand trial again, he struck a deal with the DA and pleaded guilty to the lesser burglary charge. The other charges were dropped.

Thompson was sentenced to nine years in prison. His co-defendant, Tyrus Carter guilty, was convicted of voluntary manslaughter in Diaz-Gomez's death. Carter will be sentenced in July. Two other co-defendants are already serving time for their guilty pleas.
