39-year old Terry Bryant pleaded guilty to malice murder and aggravated battery. He kicked in the door of a mobile home in Baconton June 13th and killed his ex-girlfriend, 43-year old Linda Paschal, with a garden hoe.  

He also beat her 13-year-old daughter Jessica and attacked 59-year-old Daniel Purvis with a cordless drill.

Bryant had been released from jail hours before the brutal attacks.
