On Friday, Judge Monte Watkins accepted the plea deal made between the office of the Nashville District Attorney General and former Metro Nashville Metro Police Officer Andrew Delke.
Instead of facing a jury of his peers, Andrew Delke’s charge was minimized from first-degree murder to voluntary manslaughter and will only serve a maximum of three years for ruthlessly killing Daniel Hambrick.
