HOUMA, Louisiana — A Houma man will spend life in prison after pleading guilty to killing a former neighbor.

The Houma Courier (http://bit.ly/1qROpRe ) reports that 38-year-old Cody Callais (kah-LAY) pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Thursday in the death of 68-year-old Rickie Samanie of Bayou Blue.

Samanie was found dead Jan. 21 from a shotgun blast to his chest inside his home along Bayou Blue Road. Authorities say Callais used Samanie's own gun in the killing. Callais had lived more than half his life in Samanie's neighborhood.

Police say the motive in the killing was robbery.
