Mississippi man admits killing girlfriend

GRENTA, La.

A 44-year-old Mississippi man has pleaded guilty to killing his girlfriend in a suburban New Orleans motel three years ago.

Terry Robinson had been accused of slashing and strangling 32-year-old Lesley Justice. Both were from Starkville.

Robinson pleaded guilty to manslaughter and was sentenced to 20 years in prison. He had been charged with second-degree murder, which carries an automatic life sentence without parole.

Robinson took a plea deal Wednesday just before a jury was to hear opening arguments.

Investigators say Justice was killed in an apparent domestic dispute.
