Twenty-two-year-old Brandon Jenkins of Eutawville had been charged with murder, attempted murder and attempted armed robbery in the 2011 death of 21-year-old Brittany Algoro of St. Stephen.

Jenkins pleaded guilty in Moncks Corner on Monday to voluntary manslaughter and attempted murder. Circuit Judge Markley Dennis sentenced Jenkins to 24 years in prison.

Charges are pending against four other people.
