ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Prosecutors worked out a deal with an Albany man who was going on trial for murder.

He pleaded guilty to theft and lying to Police.

[30-year old Robert Lee Williams was sentenced to four years in prison.

He agreed to the deal this morning, before a jury was seated in his murder trial.

Prosecutors say Williams helped Kasaem Toomer dump 19 year old Justin Cox's body into the Flint River at the Turner Boat Land in October 2007 and drive his car to the Civic Center and abandon it.

Toomer was convicted of Cox's murder last week, and sentenced to life in prison.

Prosecutors say there was no forensic evidence tying Williams to the murder.
