Colquitt County - A south Georgia man admits to killing a man.

Tuesday morning, 42-year-old Hank Lacey, Junior of Colquitt County pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.

A week after he was released from a mental institution, Lacey shot and killed 34-year-old Diego Perez Lopez after an argument. Lacey left Lopez dying in his living room, went to sleep and then told relatives the next morning.

Lacey will be sentenced in June.
