A man charged with capital murder will only spend the next seven years in prison. Ricky Mackey was on trial for capital murder, when he chose to plead guilty to a lesser charge of murder.

Mackey was charged in the stabbing of John Williams in December of 2006. According to the affidavit, Mackey demanded money from Williams for services from a prostitute. Williams refused, and that's when Mackey stabbed him about 20 times.

Mackey will now spend seven years in prison.

"He is the person who admitted he done it," said Tray Payne, Assistant Lubbock District Attorney. "We're just not always happy with all the outcomes that we get. That's the truth of it."
