A 24-year-old northern Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for beating his girlfriend in their Red Lake Indian Reservation home and leaving her unconscious for two days without calling for help.
William Jones IV, 24, agreed this week in U.S. District Court in St. Paul to plead guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Brittany L. Roy, 27, in exchange for a 12-year prison sentence, a term at the bottom of the federal guidelines range of 12 to 17 ½ years.
Jones' mother contacted emergency personnel after arriving at the house and finding Roy.
