A man was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years probation for a March 2011 homicide, court records show.
Anthony Xavier Johnson, 20, entered an Alford plea to manslaughter charges Friday in Oklahoma County District Court as part of an agreement with prosecutors. Under an Alford plea, a defendant accepts a sentence for a crime while still asserting innocence.
Johnson was charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Xavier Jones, 23, outside a southeast Oklahoma City apartment complex. He also entered Alford pleas to possessing a firearm after a prior conviction and concealing stolen property. He will serve his sentences concurrently.
