Investigators said two other people were in the home at the time of the killing. O’Connor was one of them.
O’Connor was initially charged with second-degree murder. He pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter Friday. Under the plea deal, he will serve 25 years in prison plus 5 years of post-release supervision.
