DECATUR, Alabama — A one-legged Alabama man cut a deal and pleaded guilty to fatally shooting a pal during a fight over a game of dominoes.
Sterling Gerome Warren, 68, was given a 10-year sentence as part of the deal after pleading guilty to manslaughter in the 2013 shooting of Thomas Jerome Bibb, Jr. during a game at Warren’s house.
“It’s unfortunate, it’s sad,” assistant district attorney Stacy Adams said, according to the Decatur Daily. “Mr. Bibb lost his life over 10 points in a domino game.”
According to cops, Warren — an amputee who wore a prosthetic leg — shot Bibb because he refused to leave when the game was over. He allegedly punched and threatened Warren when he tried to get Bibb to leave, prompting Warren to pull out a shotgun and open fire.
Warren had faced a murder charged but agreed to the plea deal involving a reduced charge as his trial was about to begin.
