JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 man accused of murder pleads guilty to a less charge and is sentenced to more than 20 years in jail.

According to the Craighead County Prosecutor's Office, Gary Lytle pleaded guilty to manslaughter and being a felon in possession of a firearm. According to the deal, Lytle will spend 24 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction.

Gary Lytle was accused in the November 5, 2010 shooting death of Henderson Davis. According to Jonesboro Police, Davis was found shot to death at 406 #C on Calion Street early in the morning hours.

Davis was lying in the doorway of the residence with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was taken to St. Bernard's Medical Center for emergency treatment, but was later pronounced dead.

Officers say the shooting was the result of an argument the two were having.

Police say Lytle was on a Greyhound Bus bound for Colorado Springs using a fake name a few days later when he was finally arrested by the U.S. Marshal's Office.

The bus made a scheduled stop in Denver, and U.S. Marshals and the F.L.A.G. (Fugitive Location Apprehension Group) Task Force made the arrest.
