MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - A Florida inmate has pleaded guilty to taking part in a 1989 fatal robbery.
Miami-Dade prosecutors say 37-year-old James Rich pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Tuesday. As part of a plea deal, he will receive 15 years, on top of a life term he's already serving for an unrelated armed burglary in Broward County.
In November 1989, a robber shot gas station clerk Alberto Roque with a shotgun. Rich, who was already in prison, contacted prosecutors in 2007, saying he had information about the killing. He confessed to being a lookout for the robbery.
Investigators are still building a case against a second suspect, who is already in prison on unrelated charges.
It's still not clear who actually killed the clerk.
