Guilty plea in Montgomery County murder case

A family finally has some closure, after a former family member pleads guilty to a heinous crime after the body of his step brother is found in a shallow grave.

Accused killer James Stell admitted on camera, to 27 Newsfirst, that he killed his step brother, 27-year-old, David Dotson in self-defense in a jail house interview in July 2009.

It's that interview that prosecutors say may have helped played a role in Friday's guilty plea, to murder.

Dotson's body was found in a wooded area in Montgomery County in 2007.
