Guam - Edward T. Megofna changed his plea to guilty for the 1998 homicide of Huen Sun Kennedy. He was charged with murder by complicity.  The Guam Police Department's Cold Case Unit determined that DNA samples from the crime scene matched that of Megofna.

The prosecution, Assistant Attorney General Clyde Lemons stated, "The Cold Case Unit of the Guam Police Department did a fantastic job in developing the case, not to mention the first responders for preserving the scene and evidence, which provided leads for the Cold Case Unit to further pursue."

Megofna remains behind bars, as Judge Anita Sukola has ordered for a pre-sentence investigation in preparation for his sentencing scheduled on October 22.
