BEEVILLE, Texas A man who shot and killed an off-duty Beeville police officer last year during a violent crime spree accepted a plea agreement from prosecutors Monday and was sentenced to 35 years in prison, officials said.

Vincent Jessamy, 19, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of murder for the slaying of Gregory Stewart, a three-year officer and an Iraq war veteran who was walking from a North Side club when Jessamy demanded his wallet and shot him twice, said Assistant District Attorney Loretta Hewitt.
