A New Orleans man has pleaded guilty to multiple crimes, including murdering a federal witness, in connection with a conspiracy involving robbery of drug dealers.

Fifty-four-year-old Gregory Denson faces a possible life sentence. However, a plea agreement filed in federal court Friday states that prosecutors agree that a 30-year sentence would be appropriate in the case.
