A suburban Fort Worth teenager has pleaded guilty to murder in the stabbing of his girlfriend's mother. Paul Allen Henson Jr., a 17-year-old from Haslet who entered his plea as an adult, would have faced a capital murder charge that carried a sentence of life in prison. He was sentenced to 60 years Tuesday in the slaying of 43-year-old Susan Bailey.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram says she was found dead from a stab wound to the neck in her Roanoke home in September.

Also facing charges in the death are Bailey's daughter, 18-year-old Jennifer Bailey, and her 14-year-old son.

Henson and the Bailey siblings were arrested in Susan Bailey's car in South Dakota.

According to affidavits, a 15-year-old girl was also involved.
