(Wauseon, OH) Sierah Joughin's accused killer may avoid the death penalty.
Attorneys for 58-year old James Worley say the defendant was offered a plea deal Wednesday by Fulton County prosecutors that would keep him off death row.
Worley is scheduled to go on trial in March, accused of kidnapping and killing Joughin last year. The plea could be addressed at a pretrial hearing in February.
Meantime, the death penalty remains on the table for accused killer Brian Golsby.
A Franklin County judge denied a motion Wednesday to bar Golsby from execution if convicted of killing former Anthony Wayne High School student-athletre Reagan Tokes, a senior at Ohio State at the time of her disappearance and death.
The judge will also permit GPS tracking data in Golsby's trial after ruling it was acquired legally.
