JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- A plea agreement in the slaying of a West Tennessee man will send a Morristown man to prison for 25 years.
The sentencing of 34-year-old Robert James Rudolph came Thursday after he entered a best-interest plea in the stabbing death of William Holland, according to The Jackson Sun.
The newspaper quoted a release from the district attorney's office in Madison County, which said the deal does not allow parole on the pleas to second-degree murder and especially aggravated robbery.
The 52-year-old Holland was from Bartlett and was in Jackson to attend a wedding. He was last seen alive on Sept. 26. A body that was later identified as Holland's was found Oct. 6 behind a business.
Rudolph was arrested in Knoxville on Oct. 8.
