FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. (WHNT) – Henry Burrell, the second man charged in six murders in Lincoln County, has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Burrell has pleaded guilty to six counts of murder, and will receive two consecutive life sentences.  Burrell signed the paperwork Wednesday afternoon and Judge Forest Durard finalized the plea.

“I just want to get it over with,” Burrell told Judge Durard.

“You understand you will never walk the streets again,” Durard said.

“Yes sir,” Burrell replied.
