BLOOMFIELD, Mo. -- A Dexter, Mo., man pleaded guilty Monday to one felony charge involuntary manslaughter for an all-terrain vehicle wreck that killed a Ronald P. Craver, 41, of Bernie, Mo., last year near Bernie.
According to Stoddard County Prosecuting Attorney Briney Welborn, Michael Norman appeared for a hearing Monday morning and pleaded guilty.
The crime was upgraded due to Norman's status as a prior and persistent offender. He is scheduled to appear Aug. 4 for sentencing.
Norman remains in the Stoddard County Jail.
