SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) — A judge has granted a newlywed husband's request to drop his bid to have his guilty plea withdrawn after admitting he helped kill a Pennsylvania man who was lured through a Craigslist ad.

A judge approved 24-year-old Elytte Barbour's request on Monday after talking with him.

Barbour and his 20-year-old wife, Miranda, are serving life sentences without the possibility of parole.

His attorney had argued his client should have pleaded guilty but mentally ill in the November 2013 stabbing death of 42-year-old Troy LaFerrara.

Miranda Barbour admitted she arranged a meeting with LaFerrara in a parking lot. She drove him into Sunbury and repeatedly stabbed him as her husband restrained him with a piece of cable around his neck.
