Guam - Endy Timoti appeared in the Superior Court of Guam today, pleading guilty to murder and driving under the influence of alcohol. Timoti's blood alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit when he was driving in Agat in March of last year and hit and killed 43-year-old Navy sailor Anna Sterling, who was operating her motorcycle at the time.
Timoti has appeared in DUI court earlier that same day and had two prior DUI convictions and was on pre-trial release for another DUI case.
He initially hesitated this morning but eventually chose to plead guilty. His plea agreement states that he will get life in prison with the possibility of parole as well as three years to be served concurrently for the felony DUI charge. Sentencing is set for September 29.
