Samuel Kevin Bridge will serve 10 years in prison after he pleaded guilty Friday to a shooting in Waynesboro.
Police say Bridge shot 37-year-old Jeremiah Woodson in the parking lot at the Quadrangle Apartments in Waynesboro in April. He then went on the run with the help of an accomplice, 24-year-old Ashley Nicole Knight.
Federal marshals arrested Samuel Bridge and Ashley Knight in West Virginia, nine days after the shooting.
On Friday, Bridge pleaded guilty to malicious wounding and using a firearm in commission of a felony. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison and will serve another seven years on probation upon release.
He avoided a jury trial later this month by entering a plea agreement with the commonwealth's attorney.
In July, Knight pleaded guilty to helping steal a car and nearly running over a police officer.
