Court records show Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and burglary with intent to commit other felony in December 2019.

Jackson was charged in the incident that occurred in April 2019.

Queenie told police she heard the doorbell ring and answered it, expecting it to be a package delivery. Instead, police say a masked suspect, Jackson, forced his way into the home, demanding money and valuables.

Queenie said she immediately told Jackson to go into the garage and take their vehicle.

Police say Bun B, who was upstairs at the time, got his pistol and went to confront the suspect in the garage.
