PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) — A Pensacola man accused of killing his mother is scheduled to be sentenced in June.
19-year-old David Ohlson was originally charged with second-degree murder for shooting and killing his mother in April 2022. Ohlson was in court Wednesday and entered a plea of no contest to manslaughter.
Ohlson told deputies his life fell apart after his parents separated and he felt his mom was abandoning him. He grabbed a gun from a safe inside the home. He planned to shoot his mom’s friend but decided to shoot her instead, according to the arrest report.
Ohlson is scheduled to be sentenced June 28.
