Man pleads guilty to murder charges

One of Kentucky's most wanted fugitives will now spend life behind bars.  Friday, Dale Moneypenny pleaded guilty to all charges against him, including two counts of murder.

Moneypenny and his girlfriend Jennifer Smith were accused of stabbing 43-year-old Charles Poynter and then setting his home on fire.

Police say the second victim, 73-year-old Blaine Thacker, Junior, allowed the two to spend the night at his apartment.

While Thacker was sleeping, Smith and Moneypenny allegedly stabbed and robbed him.  Moneypenny fled to Florida where he was captured,

A court hearing for Jennifer Smith will be later this month.
