The parents of a man accused of killing a local police sergeant pleaded guilty this morning to four of the federal charges against them.
Kathleen and Ray Vance Mathews pleaded guilty to charges that they helped their son hide from police and knowingly gave him firearms after he fled a halfway house in Colorado in February.
The couple are scheduled for sentencing in U.S. District Judge Harry "Sandy" Mattice's courtroom on Dec. 19. The most severe charge carries a 20-year maximum sentence.
