It's been more than two years since the Bowling Green murder of a high school football player, and now the last suspect has admitted guilt.

Twenty-six-year-old Charles Morse of Louisville pleaded guilty earlier this week to murder by complicity and first-degree burglary. Morse is set to be sentenced Monday to 25 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole after 20 years.

Last year, Gary Gamble, another Louisville resident, pled guilty to murder in the November 13, 2003 homicide.

Twenty-one-year-old James Corey Webster was found shot to death at his home in Willow Creek Apartments.

Morse and Gamble were allegedly trying to burglarize Webster’s home when they shot him.
