GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A Pennsylvania prisoner has pleaded guilty to a decade-old murder in Michigan.
The Grand Rapids Press reports (http://bit.ly/1pdOtcG ) Walter Antraell Wilson told police last week he killed Robert Anthony Farmer in 2004. The 33-year-old pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in Kent County court this week.
Police say Farmer was shot in Grand Rapids during an attempted robbery and died soon after. They say detectives used DNA evidence, tips and witness statements to link the crime to Wilson.
Wilson is in federal prison serving a minimum of 15 years for possession of illegal weapons in a 2007 case. He faces a minimum sentence of 25 years for Farmer's death because of his record.
