CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A murder suspect has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in the beating death of a Chattanooga pastor.
According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, 28-year-old Antonio Henry avoided a first-degree murder trial that was scheduled to begin Tuesday by entering a guilty plea to second-degree murder. He received a 20-year prison term.
Henry and his cousin, 19-year-old Brendan Barnes, were charged with murder and robbery after the body of 55-year-old David Strong was found in his home in October 2010.
The trials of Henry and Barnes were separated and no trial date for Barnes has been set.
