Columbus: Robinson enters plea in slaying

By The Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — A Columbus man has pleaded guilty to the 2005 slaying of his on-again, off-again girlfriend.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/uJqZXo) that Floyd Robinson entered the plea to a charge of manslaughter in the deal with prosecutors. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison,

In 2007, Robinson was convicted of the shooting death of Bridget Moore and sentenced to life in prison.

In 2010, the Mississippi Supreme Court ordered a new trial. The court said the jury should not have seen a videotape in which police asked Robinson about earlier domestic violence allegations made against him by Moore and another girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Moore was found inside her Starkville home by a sheriff’s deputy, who had gone there at the request of Moore’s family.
