Guam - A man accused of shooting his estranged wife in the head intends to plead guilty to murder as a first degree felony in exchange for being eligible for parole. Emmanuel Cepeda was set to go to trial next week but intends to plead out based on an agreement with the government.
According to the plea offer that Cepeda signed, he would plead guilty and be sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years. Back in February, Cepeda shot and killed his estranged wife, Emma Catapang Cepeda.
Today's change of plea was moved to December 6 because the attorney general's office hasn't met with the victim's family.
