Arvel Wills Considering Plea Offer

Prosecutors offered Arvel Wills a plea agreement on Wednesday that would reduce the charges against him from second-degree murder to involuntary manslaughter.

Wills is charged in the May 26 murder of his cousin, Dewayne Wills.

Wills would also plead guilty to felony possession of a firearm as part of the deal, prosecutors said. When he was arrested, Wills was found with a 9 mm Ruger P89 handgun and 13 rounds of ammunition, for which he didn’t have a license. He was also on supervised release for a previous felony conviction.

Wills is scheduled to appear in court again on Dec. 11, giving him a little more than a month to decide whether or not to accept the government’s offer.
