Floyd County Man Pleads Guilty In Connection With 2003 Murder

A Floyd County man has entered a guilty plea in connection with a 2003 murder.

The body of Michael Slone was found on an abandoned strip mine road in Knott County. The Floyd County Times reports Chad Conn pleaded guilty to kidnapping and assault charges.

Conn will avoid more jail time, but he's agreed to testify against Billy Joe Johnson.

Johnson's trial is set for September.

Another person charged in the case, Mitzie Johnson, pleaded guilty in 2005 to complicity to commit assault and facilitation to kidnapping.

A fourth suspect, Susan Moore, could plead guilty in April.
