On this edition of Deal of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Joplin, Missouri where Aaron E. Pilgrim, 38, was sentenced to only 8 years in prison after he beat another man to death with a baseball bat. Pilgrim was facing charges of second-degree murder and armed criminal action, but he pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of voluntary manslaughter in a plea bargain with the prosecutor. He could receive up to 15 years for the lesser charge, but he was only assessed 8. Originally aired 5/17/2011.
