ARDMORE, OK -- An Ardmore man facing first degree murder charges reaches a deal with Carter County prosecutors.
Thomas Houser was set for jury trial on the sixth but he and his counsel decided to enter a guilty plea instead.
In exchange, the charge was reduced to first degree manslaughter.
Houser stabbed 50-year-old Spencer Hales Junior to death in October.
He was sentenced to 25 years in prison but that sentence could be suspended after 12 years.
