MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – A Muhlenberg County man pleads guilty in connection with the death of his neighbor.

Rickie Jones was originally charged with murder, but he agreed to plead guilty to reckless homicide.

In return, he received a five-year sentence.

In November 2017, Jones and Tony Faith got into an argument.

Faith’s wife says she went to bed that night and she awoke the next morning to find her husband dead in the yard.

Jones went to trial on murder charges earlier this summer, but that trial ended in a hung jury.
