Plea Agreement in Winona Murder Case
Winona ,MN (KROC-AM News) - The man accused of a fatal shooting during a botched drug deal in Winona last year has entered into a plea agreement.
24-year-old Lonnie Hudson has admitted to a second-degree intentional murder charge and two counts of second-degree assault stemming from the investigation into the death of 31-year-old Adam Fort. Hudson was accused of shooting Fort during what police have described as a drug deal that became a robbery at the victim’s home last October 18th.
Winona County Attorney Karin Sonneman says the plea deal calls for a 30 year prison sentence.
Hudson and 19-year-old Reginald Burnett were named in a first-degree murder indictment that was handed down by the Winona County Grand Jury last December. Burnett previously pleaded guilty to aiding and abetting second-degree murder and second-degree assault.
His plea agreement calls for a nearly 22 year prison sentence.
