A 28-year-old Hartford man has accepted a plea deal in a fatal shooting outside a Middletown barbershop in 2006.
Angel DeThomas was one of four people in a car found speeding from the crime scene after Anthony Hall was shot and killed.
Last year he rejected a judge's offer of 40 years in prison if he pleaded guilty to the fatal shooting. DeThomas changed his mind Tuesday as the first day of jury selection in his trial came to a close.
The plea deal means DeThomas will likely receive 34 years in prison when he is sentenced March 4th.
Police say the shooting was in retaliation for the robbery and assault of DeThomas' brother hours earlier.
