PONTIAC, Mich. (AP) - A Pontiac man charged in a nearly 27-year-old murder has pleaded guilty to a lesser count of second-degree murder.

Robert Simpson entered the plea this week. The 45-year-old was arrested in September and charged with first-degree murder in the 1987 shooting of a man. Thirty-three-year-old Isaiah Turner was found with multiple gunshot wounds in a Pontiac park. A tip led detectives to reopen the case.

Simpson also pleaded guilty to possession of a firearm in commission of a felony.

His sentencing is scheduled for September.
