PAW PAW, Mich. — Timothy Andrews pleaded guilty Friday to second-degree murder in connection with the 2002 deaths of Roberta and Carlin Noble.

Andrews, 44, was initially charged with two counts of open murder in April in connection with the case.   Two other people, Michelle Gogins and Ronald Spangler Jr., are serving life sentences for the murders.

Investigators believe Andrews helped cover up the murders and he admitted to setting fire to the Nobles’ home.  He has been behind bars for perjury in connection with this case since 2007.    He’ll be sentenced for the murder charge July 20 at 9 a.m.

Roberta and Carlin Noble were found dead in their Lawton home Aug. 29, 2002.
