Gretna, La. - A Metairie man acquitted in three murders five years ago pleads guilty in a home invasion.
30-year-old Troy Derosa was charged with attempted first degree murder, aggravated burglary and simple battery following an attack in June.

The victim's elderly mother then beat Derosa with an object inside the garage.
