Man Enters Guilty Plea in Sherry Arnold Murder Case

Posted: Updated:

One of the men accused of kidnapping and murdering Sherry Arnold changed his plea today in district court.

In a plea agreement, Lester Van Waters, Jr., pleaded guilty to deliberate homicide. The state dismissed the count of attempted kidnapping. 

The written agreement recommends Waters serves a 100 year sentence with 20 years suspended. The sentence would be carried out in the Montana State Prison.  In exchange, he has agreed to cooperate in the case against Michael Spell, the other man accused in the murder.

A decision on whether to accept the agreement will be made by District Judge Richard Simonson.
