Madison County Man Accused In 2010 Double Murder Makes Surprise Guilty Plea

A Madison County man accused of murdering his mother and girlfriend made a surprise guilty plea in court Friday.

John Payne 38, was set to go to trial next April. He is accused of shooting his mother, Cornelia Gayle Mullins, and girlfriend, Meredith King, 32, to death back in 2010.

So far, there is no word on whether or not a plea deal was made in the case. Prosecutors had said they would seek the death penalty against Payne during his trial.
