Man Accused In Oklahoma Man's Death Pleads Guilty
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- A man accused in the death of an elderly Norman resident has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder as part of an agreement with Cleveland County prosecutors. Billy Battenfield entered the plea Wednesday and was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Prosecutors charged Battenfield in the November death of 80-year-old Clair Owen Pollard, who was found dead by family members in his home. Police say Pollard was stabbed and had been robbed. Brandon Reed, who also was charged in the case, testified against Battenfield at his preliminary hearing, but his credibility was questioned after he said during his testimony that he was hallucinating and often saw dead people. Battenfield's attorney, Gary Henry, didn't immediately return a message left after hours seeking comment.
