Man pleads guilty in McLaurin murder kidnapping trial

The capital murder trial for Allen Armstrong, 23, was set to begin Monday morning in Forrest County, but instead of going to court, Armstrong pled guilty Friday.

Armstrong is one of two people accused of murdering Laura Lynn Clark, 25, after kidnapping her from her home in the McLaurin community in 2006.

Clark's burned out car was found in the Irene Chapel community; two weeks later, her body was found off Sportsman's Lake Road near Paul B. Johnson state park. She had been shot once in the head.

The other suspect involved, Jerome Harris, is set to go to trial next month.
