THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Two people have pleaded guilty to murdering a recently discharged United States Army soldier in Thomasville, and one has been sentenced to life in prison.

Kiera Graham received two life sentences after she pleaded guilty to felony murder, armed robbery and arson.

Chaquel Cook is scheduled to be sentenced later this month after pleading guilty to malice murder, armed robbery and arson.

Graham and Cook are among four people charged with shooting Hassan Williams in the head in July of last year.

Williams had just been discharged from the Army where she served with Graham.

The other two defendants in the case, are still waiting to go to trial.
