Jonesboro, Arkansas – Two additional men have pleaded guilty to killing a Jonesboro man three years later.
Andrew Powell was found dead inside a vacant home on Parkwood Drive in Jonesboro with gunshot wounds in November 2019.
According to court documents show, a 29-year-old JaColby Haggard, of West Memphis, pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree murder and criminal mischief.
The men were meeting at the residence for a drug deal, according to a Jonesboro Police report.
Haggard was sentenced to 15 years in prison with 10 years of a suspended sentence.
On Tuesday, Court records also show Kyron Stegall pleaded guilty to manslaughter and first-degree forgery. He was sentenced to eight years in prison with two years of a suspended sentence.
After pleading guilty in March to manslaughter, earlier this month, Wesley Neal was sentenced to six years in prison.
During a police interview with Stegall, he admitted to being a part of the planning and commission of a drug transaction between himself, Wesley Neal, and one other suspect.
According to Jacolby Haggard’s affidavit, he and Neal were inside the home making the drug transaction with Powell when there was a misunderstanding in the transaction process. The misunderstanding is what led to the shooting.
