Wichita teen pleads no contest in Thanksgiving double homicide

— A Kansas man has pleaded no contest to second-degree murder in the shooting deaths of a Wichita couple who were killed on Thanksgiving 2009.

Eighteen-year-old Sam Holton entered the plea Wednesday in the deaths of Adrian Jackson and Jessie Foust in their Wichita home. He also pleaded to aggravated robbery.

If the judge accepts the plea, Holton would serve 13 years in prison.

The plea deal came after Sedgwick County District Judge David Kaufman last week threw out evidence and a confession, saying Wichita police entered Holton's house in Mulvane without permission or a search warrant.

Jackson and Foust's children, ages 4 and 1, were in the home but unharmed. They apparently spent a night with their parents' bodies before they were found by a relative.

13 years in jail for a double homicide??? This make no sense at all. Thanks to the liberal agenda.

if the judge threw out the confession and the evidence, then prosecutors are LUCKY to have Sam cop to a plea and get a 13-year jail term. how in the world can you blame this on either political party?!?

"Jackson and Foust's children, ages 4 and 1, were in the home but unharmed. They apparently spent a night with their parents' bodies before they were found by a relative."

Do not accept his plea.... make him serve a longer term. These children, especially the 4 year old will be the ones serving a life sentence. How can someone forget something so horrible. Those poor babies.
