A man who shot and killed his girlfriend in November 2015 admitted to the slaying before a Caddo District Court judge Monday, July 9, 2018.
Brett Wayne Burnley, 31, admitted that on November 27, 2015, he went to the home of a family friend and killed his girlfriend, Brittany Leann Green, 23. He fired several shots at her using an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, with three bullets striking her.
Burnley pleaded guilty to manslaughter before District Judge Brady D. O’Callaghan and as a second habitual felony offender was sentenced to 60 years in prison at hard labor without benefit of probation or suspension of sentence.
Burnley’s prior convictions are for unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and criminal mischief, both in 2010. He also has a misdemeanor conviction in 2014 for simple criminal property damage. The pleading was accepted with the concurrence of the victim’s parents.
Prosecutors were Assistant District Attorneys Monique Y. Metoyer and Mekisha Smith Creal. Burnley was defended by Daryl Gold.Ma
