COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) - A Columbus man has admitted to shooting his wife's alleged boyfriend, four and a half years after the crime.
In a plea agreement with the state, 47-year-old Edmund Eno pled guilty to the lesser charge of voluntary manslaughter, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.
Special prosecutor in the case Ben Richardson says Eno fired shots into 33-year-old Oscar Agbor's car on Interstate 185 North between Macon Road and Manchester Expressway back in December of 2005.
After his arrest, WXTX reported that Eno had watched his wife, Rachel, leave a hotel with Agbor and followed them, shooting into Agbor's car as they drove down I-185
Richardson says Eno's wife was in the passenger seat when Agbor was hit in the neck with a bullet and died.
Eno's attorney, Public Defender Nancy Miller, says news of the affair between Agbor and his wife led to his actions.
Miller had no comment coming out of court.
The state says Eno bought the murder weapon an hour before the shooting and even asked bystanders how to load it.
Prosecutors say he denied any involvement in the fatal shooting at first but later admitted that he did it and tried to cover it up.
