One of three Topeka men charged in a triple homicide in Lawrence is free after pleading to a misdemeanor.

Defense attorney J.C. Gilroy said Dominque McMillon, 20, pleaded no contest Tuesday to misdemeanor battery. He was freed from jail because he was sentenced to less time than he's already served in the case. A felony charge of aggravated assault was dropped as part of the plea deal.

McMillon started a fistfight that escalated into gunfire in downtown Lawrence in October 2017, killing three and injuring two.

Douglas County District Attorney said in a news release that resolving Gilroy's case allows the state to concentrate on the two remaining and more serious cases.

The two other suspects are jailed on $1 million bond each while awaiting trial.
