A shooting suspect who set off a Tulsa Amber Alert in January of 2014 has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.

Marquis Morris is charged with shooting Lemont Watson and then kidnapping an 11-year old girl. Tulsa Police issued an Amber Alert, but it was canceled a short time later after the girl called police from a QuikTrip at 61st and Memorial. She told officers Morris had dropped her off.
