East Texas Man Pleads Guilty to Murder

An East Texas man jailed last year for murder, pleaded guilty in District Court Friday.

Charles Ray Hogan was arrested last August, accused along with four others in a murder for hire scheme that left Tyler resident Munsel Joe Van Zandt dead. Hogan is the first of the group to be convicted in the murder.

The guilty plea means he faces life in prison.
