WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A Molokai man has pleaded no contest to manslaughter and other crimes in the shooting death of a teenager whose body was found on a dirt road in 2014.

The Maui News reports that 40-year-old Jeffrey Kalani Davis entered his pleas Monday to manslaughter and other gun offenses. He had been originally charged with second-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Koshari Kahikili.

The teen was found with a gunshot wound on a road leading to Kamehameha V Highway in Mapulehu, Molokai in May 2014.

Davis has been held on $1.2 million bail ever since his December 2014 arrest.

Davis is set to be sentenced in March.
