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.
