Man Pleads Guilty In Deadly Home Invasion

More Video...

A man accused of murders in two Kentucky counties enters a plea deal in one of the cases against him.

Tony Hodge was charged in Madison County in connection with a deadly home invasion. Police say Hodge and another man killed Margaret Faye Jackson in the Big Hill Community in January of 2006.

Jackson's boyfriend was also shot and stabbed, but survived the attack.

On Friday in court, Hodge pleaded guilty to all the charges against him in Madison County. Prosecutors are recommending he serve life in prison for the murder and 60 years for the other charges. He would be eligible for parole in 20 years.

His formal sentencing will be held on October 3rd.

Hodge is also charged with murder in Laurel County where police say he killed a man and burned the body in a barrel. That victim has not been identified.

    The wages of sin are death! The murdered person in this case was known throughout the the area as being a supplier of Oxycontins. But that does not justify her murder. But if you choose to roll the dice , sometimes you lose!

    All of this typing in ALL CAPS makes me think we are all angry. Can't we all just get along and recognize the fact that there is no "Justice" system?

    I BELIEVE THAT THIS MAN THAT STATED, "HE MADE A BAD JUDGEMENT," CALL SHOULD HAVE TO FACE A LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE SENTENCE AT THE MINIMUM. I UNDERSTAND THAT HE MAY A CHRISTIAN FAMILY THAT HAD NO IDEA BUT THAT DOESN'T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS CREEP BRUTALLY TAKING MY SISTER'S LIFE. DON'T JUST TAKE TO YOUR GOVERN, TALK TO YOUR PROSECUTOR WHOM CHOSE TO GIVE THIS EVIL PERSON A PLEA WHERE HE THINKS HE WILL GET OUT IN 20 YEARS. REST ASSURED, MY FAMILY WILL BE AT EVERY PAROLE HEARING THAT EVER COMES UP. HE HAS NEVER, NOT ONCE SHOWN ANY REMORSE FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE.

    Another plea agreement? Why should a murder get to plea anything! Another example of criminals getting by with murder in KY. No justice in Kentucky. I wish I could sit on that parole board, none of them would get out!

    There should be no parole. He took a life. Jail isn't good enough punishment for these murder's. I say if they get the death penalty, Quit wasting tax payer's money feeding and housing these low lifes. Go on and kill them. I'm sorry but the way we see it here in KY, is an (eye for an eye.) Lethal injection is to easy a punishment for them. I say bring it back, that the family get's to do the same as they done to thier relative. That's the way it ought to be.

    I AGREE WITH THE FIRST COMMENT .HE HAS NO REGARDS FOR A HUMAN LIFE .HE IS RUTHLESS. BUT YET HE CAME FROM A LOVING AND A CHRISTIAN FAMILY THAT HAD NO IDEA . IT IS REALLY SHOCKING TO THEM TO.

    You can use some of MY tax dollars to light up Roger Epperson and Benny Lee Hodges too. Both are convicted murderers on death row for stealing the life of a wonderful young lady some 20 years ago. Come on govenor...execute the sentence(s).

    Anyone convicted of murder as part of a home invasion should receive a mandatory death sentence. How more ruthless and calculating could someone be than to enter your own home a take your life. Well, I guess he could put your dead body in a barrel and burn you...wait he did that too. Road improvements can wait, use my tax money to light this guy up!
