Thomas Ray Johnson, accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend in 2005, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter this week in Roane County Criminal Court.
Johnson was originally indicted on second-degree murder in the death of Pamela Nicole Williams of Oliver Springs.
Johnson, 25, was scheduled to go to trial on Tuesday.
As part of his plea deal, prosecutors recommended a five-year sentence on the voluntary manslaughter charge.
