South Boston man set for capital murder sentencing

HALIFAX COUNTY (WSLS 10) - A South Boston man will be sentenced Monday in Halifax County after pleading guilty to capital murder.

James Terry faces several charges in connection to the 2011 death of 84-year-old Charlotte Rice.

The judge will decide if Terry should get life in prison without parole or the death penalty.
