A Mount Union man sentenced to life in prison for the 2008 shooting death of his estranged wife wants his plea thrown out.  The Altoona Mirror reports that John Gerholt claims he wasn't aware that the no contest plea he entered to avoid the death penalty meant a life sentence without parole.  Bedford County DA Bill Higgins says Gerholt was told the consequences of his plea  and even his own attorney says Gerholt knew what the plea involved.
