Seth Hooks pleaded guilty to the March 2008 murder and robbery of Harvey Choat during a hearing Wednesday afternoon, and 56th Circuit Judge C.A. Woodall III accepted his pleas.

A formal sentencing hearing will be held on at 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 13. Woodall said that because of the violent nature of the crime, Hooks won’t be eligible for probation or shock probation. However, 56th Circuit Commonwealth Attorney G.L. Ovey’s deal would mean Hooks would get life in prison with the possibility of parole in 20 years.

Hooks pleaded guilty to capital murder and first-degree robbery – a class B felony – in connection to the March 9, 2008, robbery and shooting of Harvey Choat at his Rockcastle home. He is also accused in the Friday, Aug. 30, 2013, robbery of the U.S. Bank in Owensboro.
