A 23-year-old Macon woman pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter Tuesday, just before a jury was to be selected for her murder trial.
Shondrinka Lashae Walker, of B Street, was sentenced to 12 years in prison followed by three years on probation in the 2012 shooting death of 47-year-old Terrific Woolfolk, according to the Bibb County District Attorneys Office.
Prosecutors argued for a 20-year sentence, said prosecutor John Regan.
Walker and Woolfolk, who she described to police as her sugar daddy, were in her car at the corner of D and Ell Street while they argued Oct. 20, 2012, Regan said.
The couple had been on their way to eat Chinese food on Pio Nono Avenue. Its unclear what spurred the argument.
Regan said Walker initially told police that Woolfolk, of Shearwater Drive, shot himself in the head.
After further investigation, police found Walkers story didnt add up and she then told officers she put a gun to Woolfolks head to scare him. She said she didnt know the gun, which she owned, was loaded, Regan said.
Woolfolk was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia in critical condition and died of his wound, Regan said.
