As Gossip Extra first revealed, Paul Michael Merhige will plead guilty to murder on Thursday. Because of a deal worked out with the office of Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe, Merhige will escape the death penalty. He will remain in prison for the rest of his life. Merhige killed four family members in Jupiter at Thanksgiving 2009.
