OXFORD, N.C. — A Henderson man has been sentenced to life without parole for murdering a retired bookkeeper.
Marcel Johnson was facing a possible death sentence, but he accepted a plea deal.
In February, authorities say Johnson broke into Mary Brummitt's home, beat her, tied her up and stole some of her property.
Brummitt died from injuries during the assault.
