Guilty plea entered for cold case murder
BATON ROUGE - A woman indicted for the 1984 murder of a man changed her plea to guilty Thursday in Baton Rouge.
Leila Mulla entered the plea to charges of manslaughter in the killing of Gary Kergan. His car was found abandoned in Metairie 30 years ago with blood inside but no body.
Mulla received a 30-year sentence in exchange for her plea, and must testify against a second person suspected in the killings, Ronald Dunnagan.
A grand jury indicted Mulla for Kergan's murder, but not Dunnagan. The two were originally arrested after Kergan's death, but released after prosecutors determined there wasn't enough evidence to move forward with the case.
News 2's Chris Nakamoto is at the courthouse and will have more details starting at noon.
