LONGVIEW — A former 911 administrator for Longview police is scheduled to plead guilty next year in the murder of his wife, county records show.
Assistant District Attorney Stacey Brownlee stressed that Harry Goodan still could opt for a full trial before his plea date of Jan. 10. Goodan, 41, is accused in the December 2010 shooting death of his wife, Longview Police Officer Jamie “Ellyn” Goodan.
Neither Brownlee nor District Attorney Carl Dorrough would say whether any plea deal has been struck.
“I think justice will be served in January,” Brownlee said.
A trial date for Goodan has been moved three times since March. Brownlee said that is not unusual in cases such as this one that require laboratory analyses of evidence and must await special court docket settings.
