Man pleads guilty in 2008 slaying

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to killing a Fort Mitchell woman.

Clyde H. Friend, 54, entered the plea in Russell County Court rather than face a trial in the 2008 death of Tiffany Fulmar.

Friend could have faced the death penalty if found guilty by a jury.
