More than 13 years after she died, Carrie Billeaud's killer admitted to the crime and has been sentenced. 

Brian Segura admitted in court today to the manslaughter of Billeaud, a New Iberia businesswoman, in December 2004. He also pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice. He was immediately sentenced to 40 years in prison for the manslaughter charge and another 10 years on the obstruction charge. Segura already is serving a life sentence for an unrelated kidnapping and armed robbery case. 

Billeaud, 62, was found dead in her water well and pool supply store on December 13, 2004. The case went cold, but in 2011 Iberia Parish Sheriff Louis Ackal announced that his investigators had tied Segura to the crime. At the time, Segura already was in the Iberia Parish jail, accused of kidnapping a woman and her young daughter and forcing the mother to get money from an ATM. That's the case that he's serving a life sentence for now. While in the prison, Segura allegedly held a guard hostage.
