A Lexington man pleaded guilty Monday to murder stemming from a 2010 shooting that left one man dead and another injured.

Darnell Eugene Farrier, 33, agreed to serve 38 years in prison for the murder of Jerry Waugh and the assault on Jerrod Vice, according to Fayette County Circuit Court documents. A sentencing date has not been scheduled.

Both men were found shot in the head inside a white Chevrolet Equinox sitting in the middle of Kenton Street on Sept. 19, 2010.

Vice identified Farrier as the person who shot him and Waugh. He told police he was meeting with Farrier, whom he knew as "D," to sell him drugs, according to court documents. Farrier entered the car, immediately shot Waugh, and then demanded money and a cellphone from Vice, according to court documents.

Vice told authorities he complied, but Farrier shot him and fled.

Farrier is being held at the Fayette County Detention Center.
