DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware man has agreed to plead guilty in the fatal stabbing near a state-run museum.

A plea hearing for Malcolm A. Casson of Dover was scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.

State police were called to the John Dickinson Plantation in February 2018 and found the body of 36-year-old Thomas M. Bunting Jr., of Milford.

As troopers were investigating the stabbing, Harrington police stopped Casson for a traffic violation while he was driving a vehicle registered to Bunting.

Casson was charged with first-degree murder, possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, and first-degree robbery.

Court records show Casson has a long criminal history, including an assault conviction related to a 2016 knife fight for which he was sentenced to 10 months in prison.
