No Contest Plea In Bryan Co. Murder Case

Posted:

BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- One of the suspects in the murder of a Denison football star has entered a plea of no contest to a reduced charge of second degree murder.

Dustin Metcalf, 29, entered a blind plea on Tuesday, which is when his trial was set to begin. District attorney Emily Redman says her office accepted the plea after consulting with the family of victim Dre'sean "D.J." Jones, who was 19.

Prosecutors call it a drug deal gone wrong when Metcalf allegedly ordered Harold Hass to shoot Jones in Cartwright in 2011. Hass pleaded guilty and has been sentenced to life in prison. Two others involved in the shooting, Alora Hix and Dylan Kelley, are also serving sentences.

Metcalf's sentencing is set for May 28. He could get anywhere from 10 years to life in prison.
