Plea Deal Ends Murder Trial

A plea deal ends another murder trial in Knott County.

Michael Wayne Slone was charged with killing Harold Short in 2005 and hiding his body in a well.

His trial started Monday, but Tuesday he entered a guilty plea to amended charges of manslaughter and tampering with evidence.

A judge will sentence him May tenth.

The plea deal calls for a 20 year jail term.
