A Dallas County man accused of killing his one-time friend will not stand trial.

The fatal shooting happened at an Adel apartment complex in February of 2012.

Police say Brandon Madren got into a fight with his childhood friend 26-year-old Nathan Green. The fight escalated and Madren fired a shot killing Green.

Madren’s first degree murder trial was set to begin Monday, but he took a plea deal this week instead.

Madren plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter, reckless use of a fire arm and several gun related charges.
