BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - In the midst of jury selection, a Baton
Rouge man has pleaded guilty in a 2006 shooting death of a server
at a restaurant.
Tracy Young, 33, admitted Friday to fatally shooting Aaron
Arnold, an Oliver Garden restaurant server. In exchange for
pleading guilty, Young will receive a life sentence. He had been
facing a possible death sentence. The Baton Rouge Advocate
newspaper reports that he entered the guilty plea on the fifth day
of jury selection in his trial.
East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III said
he would seek a life sentence for Young's convicted accomplice, who
was sentenced to death in in 2008. Moore said he plans to make that
offer to Sanchez Brumfield's lawyers.
