Man pleads guilty fatal church stabbing

ROCKY MOUNT Tommy Lee Holiday, 32, also pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and armed robbery. He was spared the death penalty in exchange for the pleas.

Investigators say Holiday killed Deborah Kornegay and critically injured another woman while they were working in a Rocky Mount church kitchen for Meals on Wheels in October 2007.

They think Kornegay was helping the homeless Holiday find a shelter when he attacked her.
