GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A Grand Rapids man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend entered into a plea agreement on the day his trial was scheduled to start.
Angel Villegas-Guzman, 23, pleaded no contest on Monday to an amended charge of second-degree murder and a felony firearm charge.
Three charges were dropped under the terms of Villegas-Guzman’s plea deal: first-degree murder, first-degree home invasion and a charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
A no contest plea is not an admission of guilt, but is treated as one at sentencing, which is scheduled for May 11.**Correction: An earlier version of this article included an incorrect age for Garnett and misspelled his first name. The text has been updated. We regret the errors.
