A Marietta man pleaded guilty to murder Friday morning in court.

22-year-old Noal D. Quattlebaum pleaded guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Amber Wesley back in July.

Prosecuting Attorney Jim Schneider said Quattlebaum had been charged with two counts; aggravated murder and murder.

Schneider said the aggravated murder count was dropped, and Quattlebaum is now eligible for 15 years to life in prison.

The sentencing for this case has not yet been set.

    Of course he is remorseful. How many criminals in prison are? What other choice do they have? He is an animal. I knew Amber. I'm sure she was tough to live with sometimes. She was a strong willed young lady. but I have had fights with my boyfriend that never went to the level of murder. He should rot for what he did to the family and to the children. I hope to hell he NEVER gets his hands on those kids.

    Noal was a very good guy put into a bad situation after a series of incidents that made his life harder than most any of you could imagine. I don't know or care about Amber, I was in an abusive relationship and I left. If you aren't strong enough to leave then make your bed and lie in it. I'm sorry for Noal and his children (if they are, in fact, his children, considering she was touting that they weren't-nice mom. Just know Noal that someone out here is feeling for you.

    He is a murder and sure he is sorry most that killed some one they been hurting for years are. He has a history of coming after her and hurting her. She tried to get help and he finally killed her. I only wish some one could of helped her. He has had an addiction with her for years. On 12 Jan 06 Sgt. Gherke was dispatched to 3570 Oak Hill Road, Cutler, in response to a domestic violence incident. Amber Wesley, age 19, stated when arrived home her former live-in boyfriend, against whom she has a protection order, was lying in wait in her bedroom. Ms. Wesley asked Noal D. Quattlebaum, age 19, 2901 Wells Road, Waterford, to leave but he refused. As Ms. Wesley attempted to answer a ringing phone, Mr. Quattlebaum shoved her to the floor and pushed a recliner over on top of her. Escaping, Ms. Wesley tried grabbing another phone but was pushed up against a kitchen cabinet, breaking two stemmed glasses in the process. After she and Mr. Quattlebaum finally parted ways, Ms. Wesley returned to her residence to discover a broken window through which Mr. Quattlebaum gained entry into the locked home. As a result, Sgt. Gherke requested summonses for Mr. Quattlebaum for aggravated burglary, for violating the terms of a protection order and for domestic violence.

    Rediculous - I didn't say I was Noal's Mom - just a Mom that's all. And really - would you speak that way too her? Anonymous - as I told someone the other day, true he pled guilty for a reduced sentence. As far as admitting his wrong doing and being remorseful, I overheard a couple of jail employees talking the other day and they said that he is remorseful and that you can see it in his eyes and hear it in his voice. Since that is their job to work around inmate's all the time I would say that they are pretty good at telling the difference between the no gooder's and the truly sorry one's. What do you think??

    To the person who knew them both and said he was a good guy: U R AN IDIOT! No one who takes the life of someone else is a "good guy"! I knew Amber also, and I don't care if she started every fight they ever had, she did not deserve to die with his belt around her throat! No matter what she did or didn't do. Furthermore be realistic, he plead guilty for a reduced sentence, not to admit his wrong doing and pay for his crime. I'm sure he wishes he could take it all back, but he can't and now she's gone forever. So he should have to live the rest of his days haunted by the memories of his brutal actions, and he should do so behind bars. To both families, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    OMG ANONYMOUS R U SERIOUS?? FOR MURDER U THINK HE SHOULD GET 5 YRS! I DONT CARE IF THE GIRL DID START ARGUMENTS SHE DIDNT DESERVE THAT!IF I WAS THE GIRLS PARENTS I WOULD SUE HIS! THATS JUST WRONG..U DONT KNOW WHAT GOES ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. THEY SHOULD HAVE BROKE IT OFF BEFORE IT WENT VIOLENT.I WAS IN A VIOLENT MARRIAGE AND I WAS BEAT ALL THE TIME FOR SOMETHIN I NEVER DID. I LEFT THE MARRIAGE BEFORE IT GOT OUT OF CONTROL. IF MY CHILD WOULD HAVE DONE SUCH A THING I WOULD PROBABLY WHIP MY CHILDS BEHIND FOR THAT.. THINK OF THE GIRLS PARENTS TELL THEM THAT UR BUDDY SHOULD ONLY GET 5 YEARS AND SEE WHAT THEY SAY.. NO MURDERER SHOULD GET OUT OF JAIL PERIOD AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED.

    Noal D. Quattlebaum is a really good guy. he was one of my best friend. i really think in my heart that he never wanted it to end up this way. he should not get 15 years he should get like 5 years at the most. thats how i feel because i knew both of them and all the times i have seen them fight was all on her starting it. Noal D. Quattlebaum i will miss you.

    noals mom i understand u are proud of ur son for paying for his sins and all.. but how can u be proud of his girlfriends family?? how do u think they are feeling? i agree with life-great..a person selling drugs gets life.murders and rapists get away with too much.this court system is crazy. that poor girls family will never be able to see her again.u can see ur son.and he will be out in 15 yrs.that girl wont be.. r u proud of what he did or r u proud of confessing? if my kids would have done that i wouldnt be proud of them at all. i would be ashamed. as should u be ashamed that ur son took another persons life.. i understand that forgiving is the best thing to do.. but not when u committed a sin like that..

    LifeGreat - it's all due process as far as pleading in any case. Deals need to be determined or not. As far as Noal's case - it was said from the very beginning that he knew it was wrong, he was very remorseful and he would pay the piper for what he'd done. I'm very proud of you Noal that you will be paying for your sins as you said you would.
