Kenneth Minor pleads guilty to manslaughter in death of motivational speaker Jeffrey Locker

A man pleaded guilty today in connection to the death of motivational speaker from Woodmere.



Kenneth Minor pleaded guilty to manslaughter for killing Jeffrey Locker.



Locker allegedly asked Minor to help stage his death so Locker's family could collect life insurance.



Minor says despite the plea, he will appeal a procedural issue to try and get less than a promised 12-year prison term.



Minor was originally convicted of murder, but the charge was overturned.
