Justin Green Trial Over Before It Starts

Posted: Updated:
Update: Justin Green pleaded guilty this morning before the trial began. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison. 

A Clay County man who got a mistrial for murder decided not to face a jury a second time. 

Justin Green pleaded guilty this morning in a Tarrant County courtroom for the death of Jose Ramirez. He was sentenced 30 years in prison. 

Last August, Justin Green faced the court in Clay County, but after 10 hours of deliberation, jurors couldn't agree on a verdict. It was ruled a mistrial.
 
Green admitted to killing Jose Ramirez, but says it was in self defense. The two were roommates at Fort Sill.

The new trial is in Fort Worth in Tarrant County.
