OXFORD, Miss. (WCBI) -The former Ole Miss student accused of stabbing his ex-girlfriend to death pleads guilty Monday.

David Jackson Williams pleaded guilty to charges of manslaughter and kidnapping in the 2005 death of his girlfriend and Ole Miss student Demetria Bracey. He entered the plea Monday in Lafayette County Circuit Court. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Williams was scheduled to stand trial later this month for the stabbing death of Bracey. Bracey was found in Williams' Oxford apartment. He was convicted of murder and ordered to serve life in prison in 2007, but won a new trial on appeal in 2010.

Williams and Bracey were students at the University of Mississippi. He claimed the stabbing death was part of a mutual suicide pact.
