Graves confessed and made a plea bargain to receive a Life sentence.  Kelly also confessed, but refused the plea bargain, went on trial and was sentenced to death.

Victims:  Steven Pryor                    9/2/1980
                David Wade Riley            9/2/1980

Co-defendant:  Thomas Graves – Sentenced to Life.  As of the date of this posting, he is still
                                                            incarcerated.  Looking at his listed information on the Texas
                                                            Department of Criminal Justice site, he is serving THREE life
                                                            sentences, including one for a murder committed the day
                                                            before these crimes, but as of yet, I've been unable to find
                                                            any information about the other murder.
