A man accused of murder in Allen County pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to weapons charges, potentially clearing the way for a double murder trial to begin early next year.
Lonnie Freeman, 40, of Etoile pleaded guilty Friday to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possession of a unregistered short-barrel rifle.
The plea agreement calls for Freeman to receive a seven-year sentence for the crimes, said Larry Fentress, assisant U.S. attorney for the Louisville office.
Although the weapon belonged to someone else, Freeman was in possession of a shotgun with a barrel of less than 18 inches in March 2006 in Barren County, Frentress said.
The plea agreement states that if the seven-year sentence is not approved by the court, Freeman can withdraw the plea.
U.S. District Judge Joseph McKinley said he would not make any decision about the sentence until a pre-sentence report on Freeman was completed.
An issue in this case that Freeman, under federal standards, qualifies as a career offender, for which guidelines could have placed his recommended sentence higher, said federal public defender Jamie Haworth durning Friday's hearing.
Freeman and Dustin L. Asher, 32 of Glasgow are each facing two counts of murder anf two-counts of tampering with physical evidence.
The men are accused of killing Daniel Froedge, 38, of Park City and Kelly O. Johnson, 32 of Smiths Grove, then setting fire to a vehicle with the bodies inside. Their bodies were found July 28, 2005, on a gravel road near Scottsville.
The case was tried initially in October 2006 and ended in a hung jury.
The new trial was scheduled durning a hearing Friday in Warren Circuit Court to start March 17, The case was moved to Warren County due to publicity surrounding the initial trial in Scottsville; it will be tried in front of Warren Circuit Judge Steve Wilson.
Freeman's sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 19 in U.S. District Court in Bowling Green. The retrial of the murder in state court was delayed twice while waiting for the federal case to be resolved; federal authorities would not release Freeman to state custody to appear in court.
With sentencing completed, Freeman should be able to appear at the next murder hearing, which is scheduled for Jan.9.

On a federal rap, you serve every day of the time you're sentenced to. If he got seven years, he'll serve seven years.
