A Rock Hill man has pleaded guilty to lesser charges in the shooting death of a man last September.
The Herald of Rock Hill reported 50-year-old Christopher Varnadore pleaded guilty voluntary manslaughter, conspiracy and accessory after the fact of attempted murder in York on Wednesday. Varnadore had been charged with murder.
Forty-four-year-old Richard Leach was shot to death on Sept. 28.
Prosecutor Kevin Brackett says Varnadore faces up to 50 years in prison when he is sentenced.
Deputies were called to the home by a man who had been waiting for Leach. That man, Erick Harris, was shot and wounded and managed to hide in some nearby woods until officers arrived.
