Judge to decide whether to accept Alford plea

A judge decides Today whether to accept an alford plea in a Magoffin County murder case.

Police say Daniel Hackworth shot and killed Donnie Allen just a day before Allen's wedding in January 2013.

The alford plea amends the charge to reckless homicide.

That also means he does not admit guilt, but concedes there is enough evidence to convict him.
