Man Pleads Guilty To Killing Meals On Wheels Volunteer

A man accused in the fatal stabbing of an eastern North Carolina volunteer church worker has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.

Multiple media outlets report that 32-year-old Tommy Lee Holiday of Rocky Mount also pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. In exchange for his guilty pleas, Holiday was spared the death penalty.

Investigators say Holiday killed 58 year-old Debbie Kornegay and critically injured 60 year-old Eve Beasley, while they were working in the church kitchen for Meals on Wheels in October 2007.

Authorities believe Kornegay was helping the homeless Holiday find a shelter when he attacked her.

    So he can plead his guilt and have his life spared, but did he heed the pleas of those women as he attacked one and killed the other? I hope he spends the rest of his natural life in jail, it's the LEAST the justice system can do.

    Another fine example of our justice system.Why does he deserve to live and be fat & happy in prison.He should be hung downtown Rocky Mount & stay there until the buzzards pick him clean.
