INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) - An Independence man was sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to killing his brother.

Forty-nine-year-old David L. Womack pleaded guilty and was sentenced Wednesday in the death of 58-year-old Bill Womack outside their mother’s home in Carollton in January 2011.

David Womack pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and armed criminal action. He had been scheduled for trial on June 27. The case was transferred from Carroll County to Ray County.
