A man has pleaded guilty in the 2019 death of Michael Ahern in Saratoga County.

Jack Jeffers, 25, was arrested and charged with manslaughter in the second degree.

He pleaded guilty to the charge Tuesday morning.

As NewsChannel 13 reported back in 2019, Michael Ahern was reported missing. He was 42 years old at the time.

The Saratoga County Sheriff's Office says Ahern was shot and killed by Jeffers on January 6, 2019, during a personal dispute.

Jeffers is in the county jail in lieu of bail.
