Gladewater Man Sentenced to Life in Prison

It's life plus 20 years in prison for a Gladewater man who confessed to murdering a Kilgore man. 22 year old Jimmy Dale Morgan was arrested in connection with some armed robberies last summer. Morgan was in custody for robbery charges when police say he admitted to robbing and beating 31-year old Tommy Dorman in 1999 with a baseball bat. Dorman later died from his injuries and Morgan pleaded guilty to that murder in court Friday. Morgan was given a life sentence for murder, then 20 years on top of that for the robbery.
