Defendant gets 40 years in Denny's killing (KTRK)

A man accused in a deadly 2013 robbery at a Denny's has reached a plea deal.

Kenya Jackson has agreed to testify against the two other suspects in the case.

Police say the group of men walked into the Denny's restaurant near Interstate 10 and Washington Avenue. They shot and killed Robert Placette while he was protecting his children.
A restaurant employee was also shot.

If Jackson lives up to his end of the deal, his capital murder will be reduced to aggravated robbery and gets 40 years.
