A Columbia man who was charged with a Lancaster city mother’s 2004 murder is back in prison on two separate charges.
Michael T. Stewart, who eventually pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge in Heather Nunn’s death, will serve 1 ½ to 3 years in state prison for having “Molly” mix, along with synthetic marijuana, and for illegally entering a Columbia couple’s home.
Stewart - “Mike Murder” as he’s known on the street, according to trial testimony and charging documents - pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including felony trespass and misdemeanor drug possession.
He was sentenced Monday in Lancaster County Court.
In 2010, Stewart was one of four men charged in Nunn’s death – six years earlier during a robbery at her Pearl Street home.
A local jury ultimately convicted two men, who are serving life-in-prison terms.
Jurors were deadlocked on the fate of Stewart and another defendant after the joint trial of all four men.
Stewart and prosecutors worked out a plea agreement — 8-to-23 months in prison, plus three years’ probation — on a conspiracy-to-robbery charge.
Assistant District Attorneys Ed Tobin and Maria Cusick prosecuted the recent cases.
Columbia and Susquehanna Regional police filed charges.
