Plea Deal in Hoover Veteran's Murder

A plea deal was reached with a suspect who testified against co-defendants in the Mike Gilotti murder case.   Darrian Bryant pleaded guilty to breaking into vehicles.   In exchange, the district attorney's office agreed to drop the murder charge, and Bryant will avoid jail time.   Ahmad Johnson, acquitted of killing Gilotti, pleaded guilty to reckless endangerment in a separate crime, stemming from shots fired at a man in Fultondale the day before Gilotti's murder.  Johnson was sentenced to a year in prison.   Gilotti -- an Iraq War veteran-- was gunned down outside his Hoover home in 2016.   Charleston Wells was also found not guilty of murder, but is jailed in a rape case.   A fourth suspect, De'Ron Lucas, still faces trial.
