A California man facing charges in a 2012 burglary who also was found guilty last year in a separate case in Owensboro of robbery and sexual assault took a plea deal Monday morning before his trial was to begin. According to the Messenger-Inquirer, 24-year-old Christopher Byrd was charged with second-degree burglary in the December 2012, incident that took place in the 1200 block of Venable Avenue. Police said the front door was kicked in and about $3,000 in items were stolen. Two co-defendants were also charged, including Byrd’s cousin, Chavez Byrd, as well as Keelan Walton. If those names sound familiar, it was those three that also were found guilty last year of a home invasion robbery and assault on Lancaster Avenue. Before the trial was to begin Tuesday for the 2012 case, Christopher Byrd entered an Alford plea. He is currently serving 12 years in prison for the case last year, and must serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before parole is considered.
