February 24, 2003

Moultrie-- A teenage boy pleads guilty to involuntary manslaughter. Jarrod Waldon of Moultrie was fifteen when he shot and killed 14-year-old Atticus Jones.

Jones was shot in the back of the head New Year's Eve 2000.

Waldon said it was an accident. He was originally charged with murder, but pled to the lesser charge. Waldon was sentenced to three years in prison.

The victim's father says three years behind bars is not enough.
