An autopsy revealed he had been shot before the truck was set on fire.

Peel pleaded guilty to manslaughter – dropped down from murder – in Jessamine County on Tuesday.

He is scheduled to be sentenced next month.

The attorney general’s office says it will be recommending a 20-year sentence.

Another man, Odis Henson, pleaded guilty in 2015 to arson and evidence tampering in connection to the case.
