A Fairmont man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a March 2018 shooting death.
Christopher Jones, 23, entered an Alford Kennedy Plea, which is a guilty plea by a defendant who claims to be innocent, in front of Marion County Court Judge David Janes on Tuesday.
Jones could face 10 to 40 years in prison. Judge Janes ordered a pre-sentence investigation and expects Jones to be sentenced in about eight weeks.
Judge Janes also ordered Jones to pay court fees and restitution to Josephus Coburn’s family.
