A man accused of killing a Navy superior faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to voluntary manslaughter.
Media outlets report that 26-year-old Paul S. Bricker entered his plea Wednesday in Virginia Beach Circuit Court. Sentencing is set for Aug. 6.
Prosecutors say Bricker stabbed Chief Petty Officer Gerard Curran at First Landing State Park in August 2009. Bricker was a petty officer second class at the time.
Bricker told investigators that Gerard wanted to commit suicide and recruited him to help. He said Curran wanted his death to appear as a homicide so his family would receive benefits.
