Guilty Plea In A 20 Year Old Murder Case

A guilty plea in a murder case that's more than 20 years old.

Officials say James Napier pleaded guilty to manslaughter not murder.

This comes after Napier's wife, Michele, was convicted earlier this year for complicity to commit murder.

The case started in 1984 when Roger Arthur "Cotton" Adams was found dead after being shot in the head in Estill County.

The Napier's were arrested and indicted a few years ago after new information surfaced.
