Daniel Wade Moore has decided to avoid a trial for burglary.  He pleaded guilty in the case today.

Moore pleaded guilty to a charge of third-degree burglary.  A Morgan County judge will sentence him on August 28 at 9 a.m.  Moore will be kept in custody until then.

Moore and his attorney met with prosecutors last week, but failed to reach an agreement.  His trial had been scheduled to start today, however, the judge was planning to delay it until Thursday.

This guilty plea is for the burglary of a Wally World convenience store in Decatur on June 12, 2011.  Police say surveillance video clearly shows Moore stealing items. 

Moore has been in and out of jail since 1999, when he was accused of murdering Karen Tipton in Decatur.  He was convicted and sentenced to death for it, but was later acquitted of the charges in a re-trial.
