Man pleads guilty to charge in 2007 cold case murder – WAVY

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — One of four suspects in a 2007 cold case in Norfolk pleaded guilty to a charge this week.

The Office of the Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney says Duane Phillip Goodson pleaded guilty Monday to illegal disposal of a bead body. He is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 13.

Man pleads guilty to cold-case murder of Norfolk Botanical Garden worker – Virginian

NORFOLK

Facing the death penalty, a 29-year-old North Carolina man pleaded guilty to capital murder Tuesday and was sentenced to 38 years in prison for kidnapping, stabbing and strangling his former co-worker.

Michael Ryan Brown maintained his innocence but conceded that prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him of capital murder and abduction with the intent to defile. Prosecutor Phil Evans agreed to drop three other charges.

Circuit Judge Junius Fulton III sentenced Brown to life in prison for capital murder but reduced it to 38 years, in accordance with the plea bargain. He gave him 20 years for the kidnapping charge but included it in the time for the murder sentence.

“Our goal was to save his life,” said Brown’s lawyer, Emily Munn.

Brown, who was also represented by state-level capital public defenders, was accused of strangling his co-worker from the Norfolk Botanical Garden, Angie Lechlitner, after binding her and raping her with an

Lloyd Welch pleads guilty to killing Maryland sisters Katherine and …

The conviction of the former carnival worker, after 42 years, marked an extraordinary moment in a case that stunned the region in 1975. The girls’ disappearance on a day when they had walked to a mall to have lunch, meet friends and look at Easter decorations at Wheaton Plaza became a seminal event for thousands of people, convincing them the world was no longer as safe as they had believed. That Kate and Sheila had seemed to vanish, and no culprits had been caught, enhanced the terror.

Welch’s plea to two counts of first-degree felony murder answered some but not all of the lingering questions in one of the Washington area’s most painful mysteries.

Left unknown is who — if anyone — besides Welch was
