Decatur man pleads guilty to murder

DECATUR, Ala. (WAFF) - A Decatur man charged with murder in a 2016 shooting pleaded guilty Monday.

Olajuwon White took the deal in exchange for lesser drug charges against him being dropped.

He’s never denied shooting Marcus White to death in 2016, but he’s insisted he was acting in self defense. The two men are not related.

Prosecutors did not include any sentencing recommendations as part of the plea.

No word right now on when sentencing will happen.
