The second suspect charged in what investigators called a "horrendous" hunting camp murder pleaded guilty to charges Thursday.

Darrell Georgetown Jr., 27, of Plaquemine, pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact to second-degree murder and obstruction of justice in an Iberville courtroom in connection with the murder of Kye Boudreaux, 26, also of Plaquemine.

Georgetown was sentenced to five years in prison, but the time was suspended by the judge. Instead, he is now on five years of supervised probation.

Investigators said he provided transportation to gunman Detrell Scott, 22, of Plaquemine, and discarded Boudreaux’s phone and wallet. 

Georgetown was expected to serve as a state witness through Scott’s trial, but Scott pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder on the day his trial was to begin.

Boudreaux was shot and killed at his family camp in Iberville Parish in May 2014 and left for dead. Scott confessed to authorities he tried to burn Boudreaux's truck in a field after shooting him.

Scott is now serving a life sentence.
