Remaining Word Of Life Defendants Plead Guilty
The four remaining defendants in the Word of Life Church case were back in Oneida County Court Friday morning, where all four accepted plea offers from the District Attorney's Office.
Pastor Tiffanie Irwin, Joseph Irwin and Linda and David Morey pleaded guilty to charges in the death of Lucas Leonard and the beating of Christopher Leonard last October.
Tiffanie Irwin will be sentenced to 12 years in prison for manslaughter and five years for assault.
Linda and David Morey pleaded guilty to two counts each of assault, which both carry five year sentences. Joseph Irwin will get eight years for gang assault and five years for assault.
All of the terms will be served concurrently.
Four other defendants in the case -- including the boys' mother and father -- also entered guilty pleas and one was found guilty at trial.
