Douglas man pleads guilty to murder

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Michael Berrian was sentenced to life in prison after he plead guilty to murder in Coffee Superior Court just before his trial was scheduled to begin this morning in Douglas.

Assistant district attorney John Rumker says Berrian shot 38-year-old Marcus Collins in February 2012, during a drug deal.

Collins' body was found in the parking lot of the Roundtree Center.

Berrian will be eligible for parole.
