The trial of a Gwinn man charged with operating a meth lab came to an abrupt end Thursday.
Aaron Armatti, 38, took a plea deal after the jury deliberating his fate went home for the day. Armatti pled guilty to a misdemeanor of using a controlled substance.
Armatti has been charged with conspiracy to use a dwelling to manufacture methamphetamine, a 20 year felony. The guilty plea could mean a one year jail sentence for Armatti. No sentencing date has been set.
Armatti's Gwinn home exploded last December. Police later found evidence of a meth lab inside the house.
