Paris teen pleads guilty to murder

PARIS, TX-- A Paris teen pleaded guilty in a Lamar County courtroom to murder charges.

16 year old Quindarrius Lyons of Paris pleaded guilty Wednesday after a judge said he could stand trail as an adult.

District attorney, Gary Young, says Lyons was charged as an adult because of his violent past and six months away from turning 17.

Lyons was one of four arrested for the shooting death of 28 year old Roland Williams in May.

He agreed to testify against the other three suspects, if needed.

Lyons was sentenced to 14 years behind bars, and is currently being held in the Lamar county jail, awaiting transfer.
