Major C. Edwards Jr., of Lawrence, makes his first court appearance in May 2008 at the Douglas County Jail in the case of the 2006 shooting of Anthony Vital. Edwards was charged with premeditated first-degree murder but in March 2010 pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in a plea deal that would shave four years from his prison sentence in exchange for his testimony against his co-defendant at the time, Durrell Jones, 24, of Kansas City, Kan. He is now scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday.
