Former Fort Sill soldier pleads guilty to killing fellow soldier

Posted: Updated:

FORT WORTH, Texas_A former Fort Sill soldier accused of murder will not face a jury for the second time.

Justin Green pleaded guilty for the death of Jose Ramirez Monday morning before his retrial began in Fort Worth and was sentenced to 30 years in prison. Last August a mistrial was ruled when a north Texas jury could not come up with a unanimous decision on a verdict. Prosecutors said Green admitted to killing his friend and fellow Fort Sill soldier Jose Ramirez in 2007 but said it was in self defense.

Investigators said Green later buried Ramirez's body in a shallow grave near Petrolia.
