Man involved in O’Charley’s shooting pleads guilty to amended charges

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A man involved in a double homicide that occurred back in January of 2020 has entered a guilty plea for several charges.

The O’Charley’s parking lot was the scene of a fight between two individuals back in January, according to police.

Both individuals called other people to come help them and two of those men were shot and killed.

In the interaction, police say Elijsha Taylor shot Michael Russell and Terry Stice returned fire killing Taylor.

Both Taylor and Russell died from their injuries.

Stice is not charged in the shooting death of Taylor.

After the shooting, two other people involved in the fight hit Stice with their car, turned around  and fled the parking lot, according to police.

As they left, Stice fired at their vehicle.

Originally, Stice was charged with two counts of attempted murder and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.

This week, Stice pleaded to amended charges of two counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, tampering with physical evidence and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon along.

Stice’s maximum sentence would be 15 years with a possibility of parole after serving 10 years.
