Cold case settled with plea agreement
A man accused of killing a Seward woman 29 years ago pleaded guilty Tuesday to a charge of manslaughter after years of legal proceedings.
State prosecutors and Jimmy Eacker’s public defendant Ben Adams negotiated a lesser charge than the original first-degree murder charge, according to state cold case prosecutor Paul Miovas. Superior Court Judge Anna Moran accepted the plea agreement.
“We’ve been discussing the matter for quite some time,” Miovas said.
