TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Omar Jackson and Keyona Henderson both pleaded guilty to murder charges, Friday Morning.

Henderson was arrested last May for her part in the murder of Patrick Pinkerton.

Pinkerton was found dead in his Tyler apartment. Authorities said he was stabbed to death and robbed.

Jackson later turned himself in.

The two were originally charged with capital murder. Those charges were reduced to just murder, as part of a plea agreement with the state.

Both were sentenced to 50 years in prison. They will be eligible for parole in 25 years.
