Man accused of murder in Magnolia enters guilty plea
An Arkansas man accused of first degree murder in the death of a Magnolia woman has changed his plea to guilty. Robert Harrison, 32, was set to go to trial this Spring, but Thursday entered a guilty plea in Columbia County Circuit Court. He's accused of the May murder of Glenda Stroman, 74. Police found Stroman's body inside her home on North Dudley. Prosecutors say Harrison went to Stroman's home to get money and when she refused, he choked her and cut her throat. Authorities say Harrison met Stroman while doing plumbing work on her home. Stroman's daughter, Regina Minor says the crime is a tragedy for both families. "I feel sorry for his folks because they are losing a son in a way, but we lost a mom and we miss her alot," said Minor. Harrison has been sentenced to life in prison at the Arkansas Department of Corrections.
