PHOENIX (AP) -

Another man charged in the killing of an undercover Chandler police officer during a 2010 undercover drug bust has pleaded guilty.

Doarnell Jackson is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 24 in Maricopa County Superior Court after pleading guilty Friday to second-degree murder and other charges.

Detective Carlos Ledesma died in a July 2010 gunfight. The 34-year-old and other officers posed as dealers and showed two suspects a marijuana sample before arranging for a sale at a home in south Phoenix.

Thandika Singleton and John Howard Webber previously pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the case and are serving prison sentences.
