Plea Deal Offered in Angola Murder Case

An Angola man accused of stab­bing his mother and sis­ter back in Jan­u­ary changed his plea in Steuben Supe­rior Court on Fri­day. 49-year-old Jef­frey Allen Pep­pler offered to plead guilty to killing his sis­ter if pros­e­cu­tors would drop the charge of attempted mur­der of his mother. Judge William Fee will con­sider the bar­gain, and if accepted, Pep­pler will be sen­tenced on August 28 to a prison term of 45–60 years, which was also part of the plea bar­gain. He also waived his right to appeal the judge’s deci­sion if the deal is accepted.
