ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - An Iraq war veteran has pleaded guilty to murder, rape and tampering with evidence in the 2008 death of a women he worked with at a shoe warehouse in central Kentucky.
The News-Enterprise of Elizabethtown reports that former Radcliff resident Jeremy Shields entered the plea Wednesday in exchange for a life sentence in the death of 34-year-old Wendy Sue Logsdon.
Commonwealth's Attorney Chris Shaw says the plea deal was acceptable to Logsdon's family.
Logsdon, a mother of three, went missing in January 2008 when she was supposed to meet Shields at a Louisville bar. She was not seen alive again by family or friends.
Logsdon's half-burned body was found two days later in rural Hart County.
Shaw says Shields could be eligible for parole after serving 20 years, when Shields will be 48.
