COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man who tried to blame the antidepressant Zoloft for the shotgun slayings of his grandparents when he was 12 years old has pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
Christopher Pittman accepted a plea deal Thursday in Chester.
The now-21-year-old man earned a new trial when a judge in July ruled Pittman's original attorneys didn't pursue a plea deal and focused too much on Zoloft during his 2005 trial.
Thursday's plea means Pittman could be released from prison in about 12 years.
