A Topeka man has pleaded guilty in the shooting death of his wife.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Manuel Alcala pleaded guilty Monday in the death of Ashley Alcala, who was killed at her home last year. He was charged with premeditated first-degree murder in the shooting death.

Alcala's mother, Manuela Alcala, also entered guilty pleas Monday to four related felonies in the case, including obstruction of prosecution and interference with law enforcement.

Both mother and son were scheduled to stand trial Monday in the death. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 24.

Another defendant in the case, Gabino Alcala, is scheduled for a court appearance Tuesday, and a hearing date for a fourth defendant, Benjamin Anaya, hasn't been scheduled.
