His second-degree murder trial was scheduled to begin this week, but a Baton Rouge man already knows his fate in the baseball bat beating death of a Southern University coed six years ago.

That's because 53-year-old Timothy Washington pleaded guilty yesterday to the lesser charge of manslaughter in the 2011 killing of 26-year-old Sheena Barnett. 

In return, he was sentenced to 17-and-a-half-years in prison.
