CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A Charleston man pleaded guilty Monday to killing a 90-year-old man that he had previously done some odd jobs for.
Anthony Caldwell, 39, said he used a hammer to take the life of George Molle back in January. Caldwell took a cigar box of cash and a jar of change after the attack.
Caldwell pleaded guilty to murder, charges of breaking and entering, burglary and robbery were dismissed as part of the plea deal.
Kanawha County Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey will decide if Caldwell will have a chance for parole after 15 years at his Sept. 19 sentencing.
Molle’s family agreed with prosecutors on the terms of the plea bargain. Caldwell was set to go to trial beginning Monday.
