Man Pleads Guilty to Neighbor Shooting

WETUMPKA, Ala. (AP) - An 81-year-old man charged with capital murder in connection with a fatal property dispute has pleaded guilty.

Paul Norman Jones, of Wetumpka, pleaded Tuesday to murder and two counts of attempted murder in Elmore County Circuit Court.

Authorities had accused Jones in the May 2009 shooting of Gerald and Linda Ingram, his neighbors, and of fatally shooting 85-year-old Frank Barrett, a neighbor authorities think was trying to call for help.

The plea agreement includes a recommendation of a sentence of 20
years on each count to be served concurrently.
