David Tackett pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and robbery charges Wednesday. His murder case had been set for trial this coming week.

Court documents say Tackett shot Kylee Tabor in the head back in June of 2017. Police found Tabor's body in a garage behind a house.

Investigators say they learned the two had been fighting earlier.

The judge took Tackett’s plea agreement under advisement. If it's accepted, Tackett will be sentenced March 5th.
