Amarillo, Texas - A plea agreement is reached Thursday in an Amarillo Murder trial. The 47th District Attorney says 34 year old Amador Lujan Lomeli pleaded guilty in court Thursday morning and will spend 20 years in prison.

In August of 2007, Lomeli says he shot and killed 54 year old Henry Hernandez outside of Buster's lounge on Southeast 27th in Amarillo. The District Attorney says his office sought a plea deal to keep from resulting in a hung jury.
