Winona, MN (WXOW) - -

The La Crosse man accused of fatally shooting a Winona man during a robbery nearly a year ago is now going to prison.

Winona County Attorney Karin Sonneman said that Lonnie Lavonte Keymore Hudson, 25, pleaded guilty to one charge of Murder in the Second Degree and two counts of Assault in the Second Degree.

Last October 18, Hudson and a second man, Reginald Burnett, went into the apartment of Adam Fort and demanded money from him according to witnesses. During the hold up, Fort was shot in the stomach by Hudson. Fort later died from his wound.

Hudson was arrested four days later in Wausau. Burnett was arrested the following Saturday in Joliet, Illinois.

The plea agreement calls for Hudson to get a 30 year prison sentence for the murder and assaults.

Burnett is scheduled for his sentencing later this month for his role in the shooting. 

Sonneman said in a statement that “this outcome is a measure of justice on behalf of Adam Fort, the other victims, their families, and the entire Winona County community.”
