A Toledo man will spend 20 years in prison for killing a man last year.

Deshone Sykes reached a plea deal in Lucas County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday.

Sykes admitted to killing Jonathon Cain and plead guilty to a lesser sentence of involuntary manslaughter.

Police believe Sykes and Cain knew each other, and that the shooting stemmed from an argument.
