RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A second man who authorities believe is linked to the killing of a Sheffield woman has pleaded guilty to unrelated gun charges.

Michael Norrie changed his plea Wednesday to a charge of being a convicted drug user in possession of a stolen gun and having and then selling or trading the gun.

A Vermont State Police detective testified that Norrie had confessed to part of the murder of 78-year-old Mary "Pat" O'Hagan in 2010.

Prosecutors have linked Norrie, Richard Fletcher and Keith J. Baird to the killing, but no charges have been filed in connection with her death.

On Tuesday, Fletcher was sentenced to more than 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual exploitation of a minor.

Norrie's lawyer did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
