Texas Township Man Accused of Murder Enters Plea
A Kalamazoo County man has pleaded no contest to a second degree murder charge in the death of his ex-wife last year.
75-year-old Jimmy Thrasher of Texas Township is accused of fatally shooting Grace Thrasher during a struggle inside their home.
The plea was entered on Tuesday in a Kalamazoo Court. Thrasher has been in the county jail since he was arrested in May of last year.
While a no contest plea is not an admission of guilt, it is treated as one for sentencing.
Thrasher faces life in prison at his sentencing in February.
