Deputy DA Robert Money said Cole was under the influence of marijuana when he removed the magazine from the pistol and placed a bullet in the chamber before accidentally reloading the pistol.
The accidental discharge hit Brewton in the back. Authorities declared her dead upon arrival at Cole’s apartment, where the man was found crying uncontrollably.
“Oh my God, I didn’t want to do that,” Cole’s witnesses recalled, the Tribune reported in September. “Do not die !”
Authorities found a locked safe in Cole’s home containing 5.6 grams of methamphetamine, a scale and plastic bags. Money said the articles suggested that Cole intended to distribute the drug, according to the newspaper.
Cole of Gurnee pleaded guilty Monday to manslaughter and a drug charge in a settlement with the Lake County Attorney’s Office, according to the Tribune.
As part of the plea deal, Cole, who had no criminal record, will serve a four-year prison sentence before a three-year suspended sentence for convicting methamphetamine.
Cole, who is entitled to the night credit for manslaughter, has spent 274 days in Lake County Jail since his arrest. Recognition of his sentence and his serving sentence mean he could be released in about a year, according to the report.
