Saginaw Man Accepts Plea Deal In Murder Case 5-18-2011

A man imprisoned for another murder has pleaded no contest in the killing of a Bay City woman.
Patrick Martin made the plea Tuesday to first-degree murder. A no-contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing purposes.
The 40-year-old Saginaw man is accused of beating Debra Kukla to death in her garage nearly two years ago.
Robbie Kukla tells The Bay City Times he's glad Martin took responsibility for his ex-wife's death.
Martin had been dating the 44-year-old Kukla at the time of the slaying.
A Saginaw County jury convicted Martin in February of first-degree murder in a 2002 killing.
Martin was sentenced to life in prison without parole on March 23.
He was charged in Bay County the next day with Kukla's death.
