A Lodi man who faced a murder charge despite claiming he accidentally shot and killed his roommate last year will serve time in a state prison, after pleading guilty to a lesser charge in a Stockton courtroom.

Richard Welker, 33, appeared in San Joaquin County Superior Court on Tuesday to plead guilty to involuntary manslaughter, with an enhancement of use of a firearm, as well as being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm. On March 26, Welker will receive an 8-year prison sentence, according to the terms of the deal reached by the District Attorney’s office and Welker’s attorney, Victoria Bossi.
