Tucson man pleads guilty in roommate’s 2011 murder

TUCSON, Ariz. — A Tucson man is facing up to a 22-year prison sentence
after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

Pima County prosecutors say 26-year-old Louie Childs entered his plea

The Arizona Daily Star says Childs is scheduled to be
sentenced March 4 and the sentencing range is 10 to 22 years.

Authorities say Childs admitted to repeatedly stabbing his 26-year-old roommate
Craig Alcorta with a kitchen knife on Dec. 3, 2011.

Childs originally told investigators he thought Alcorta was a pedophile who had
“bad intentions” toward Childs’ young sister.

Detectives say Childs eventually told them that Alcorta had tried to hit him
and that led to the stabbing.
