Wadlington is charged with murder in that Texas town and was out on bond when he and George “Kelly” Mayes were charged with murder of a Princeton man last fall. He was scheduled to stand trial in Texas just weeks after the shooting of LaWarren O’Keith Sims at a Cerulean night spot.
Thomason said that as soon as Wadlington is formally sentenced in Trigg County his office will begin immediately the process to have him return to Texas where he is scheduled to stand trial.
“Once formally sentenced, we’ll bring him back for trial,” Thomason said.
Wadlington, at one time a promising athlete at Trigg County High School, had received a scholarship to play football at Ranger Junior College when he allegedly shot and killed a person who he said, broke into his dorm room armed with a rifle.
Wadlington said he was shot in the arm during an ensuing scuffle before he took the gun and then chased D’Waylon Jones and Brandon Jones out onto the parking lot where he allegedly shot Jones several times as he was running away.
Jones had been shot several times, police said, but apparently bled to death from a wound in his leg.
