MILFORD - Some missing papers are holding up a potential plea deal in a fatal stabbing in Milford.

Philip Moncrease is accused of killing Ryan Simpson, 19, at his home over a $50 debt earlier this year.

Court officials say there is some confusion over who has a copy of important documents.

Both sides say the missing papers are all they need to move forward with a plea deal.
