Murder charge reduced by plea
WARRENTON — Harold Lastly Plummer will spend five to seven years in prison for the stabbing death of Corey Jamel Robinson.
Plummer, 59, appeared Monday before Judge Robert Hobgood in Warren County Superior Court. Plummer pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in an agreement that dropped a second-degree murder charge.
Plummer, who had been free on $100,00 bond, received credit for 10 days of jail time already served.
Plummer killed the 24-year-old Robinson at a family gathering in the Macon area on Sept. 28. Warren County deputies arrested Plummer at his 289 Kimball Point residence the next morning at 3.
An autopsy report certified Robinson’s cause of death as a large knife wound to the left chest that pierced the heart and no signs of a struggle.
