BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A man charged with second-degree murder in connection with a deadly shooting was sentenced to 35 years Tuesday after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

George Triplett, 25, of Baton Rouge, entered the plea for his involvement in a shooting that left Philip Boudreaux, 18, dead on August 2, 2012.

The shooting happened at the Chateau D’Cour Apartments in the Tigerland area. Police believe Triplett and another man, Dedrek Brown, 27, were trying to rob Boudreaux.

Investigators said Boudreaux was shot in the head and later died at the hospital.

Judge Chip Moore gave Triplett credit on the sentence for time served since 2012.
