In final case related to attorney's homicide, man takes misdemeanor plea in case over stolen rifle

A former prison guard pleaded guilty Tuesday to two misdemeanor counts of receiving stolen property, including a rifle reportedly used to kill a Pennsylvania lawyer.

Thomas Tuso, 37, will be sentenced in July. Meanwhile, another former prison guard, Raymond F. Peake III, pleaded no contest last year to charges including criminal homicide in the slaying of attorney Todd Getgen, whose body was found at a rifle range in 2010, shot to death. Peake is serving a life term, reports the Sentinel.

Tuso is accused of holding weapons for Peake, whose no-contest plea included a charge that he had stolen Getgen’s AR-15 semiautomatic assault rifle.
