A Mississippi man is expected to plead guilty to a lesser charge this week in connection with a Miami County murder that occurred nearly 24-years ago.
The “Peru Tribune” reports that 54-year old Timothy Jimerson will plead guilty to a charge of Voluntary Manslaughter in connection with the death of Toni Spicer. Spicer was found strangled to death in her mobile home in southern Miami County in August of 1992. The case went cold until a D-N-A match was discovered through F-B-I records two years ago and Jimerson was implicated. He was found in a Mississippi jail and returned to Miami County late last year to face a murder charge.
Jimerson’s attorney told court officials that a plea deal has been worked out to resolve the case and that Jimerson would plead guilty to the lesser charge at a hearing on Thursday.
