A Glen Burnie man who told police that he would not have killed his father and wounded his stepmother had he not been so high on PCP pleaded guilty yesterday to the crime and agreed to the maximum sentence.

Grierson, 27, pleaded guilty before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Pamela L. North to second-degree murder and felony assault in the Jan. 22 fatal stabbing of his father, Fred Charles Grierson, and the wounding of his stepmother, Deborah Grierson, at their Glen Burnie home.
