James Washington thought he was gonna get away with murder. He was already in prison, serving time for a different crime, when he suffered a heart attack.
He called the guard on duty and said he had something to get off his conscience. He confessed to the murder of Joyce Goodener, whom he had killed in 1995.
The guard recalled his confession in court, while the man tried to take it back after he survived the heart attack.
However, the man was found guilty of the murder and now faces a life sentence. It's a very unusual circumstance, but we're glad that justice was done!
