Lynchburg Man Enters Plea To Charges In Madison Heights Murder

A Lynchburg man entered an Alford plea regarding his role in a 2016 Madison Heights murder.

Floyd Alex Archie Jr., 20, was one of three people charged in the murder of Troy Tyrone Roberson. He was found in 2016 with multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. 

An Alford plea means Archie does not admit guilt but acknowledges the commonwealth has enough evidence for a conviction.

Archie faced charges of being an accessory after the fact to murder, accessory before the fact to use of a firearm in commission of a felony in a robbery or attempted robbery, accessory before the fact to attempted robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

He faces a maximum of 33 years in prision on the charges. His sentencing hearing is set for January 9, 2019.
