Mellor to Plead Guilty to 2nd Degree Murder Charges
Lawyers for a Bloomington teacher say she's pleading guilty to murder charges for the chance to avoid prison. Sarah Mellor yesterday agreed to plead guilty to second degree murder charges for stabbing her husband to death at a Woodford County campground last fall. Mellor's lawyer says they agreed to the plea when prosecutors offered to drop first degree murder charges in exchange for a second degree charge that could earn Mellor just four years of probation. She'll be sentenced in July.
