The plea in the death of Mark Morrison, 52, was entered before county Judge Brian Burns as the deadline – yesterday – for two plea options was running out, District Attorney John Muehl said today.

Muehl said he offered Underwood and his lawyer, Public Defender Bruce Maxson, two options:  second-degree murder, 15 years to life, or first-degree manslaughter at a firm 20 years.   Underwood chose the “determinant” sentence, the D.A. said.
