Plea Agreement Reached in Randolph Murder

New Albany resident Nettie M. Luckett was present in Floyd Circuit Court Thursday to enter a guilty plea in the August 28, 2011 shooting death of her son-in-law, Douglas Randolph, 49, a resident of Louisville, Ky.

Luckett, 75, was formally charged with Randolph’s murder several days after her arrest on the night of the shooting. Had the case progressed to the trial stage, and Luckett was convicted, she faced a potential penalty range of 45 to 65 years in prison.

In accordance with the plea agreement, Luckett plead guilty to one count of voluntary manslaughter committed by means of a deadly weapon, a Class A felony, and accepted a term of 30 years incarceration with the Indiana Department of Correction.

A formal sentencing hearing is set for July 12, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. in the Floyd Circuit Courtroom.
