Kentucky man sentenced to life in woman's murder

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man was sentenced to life
in prison for the death of his co-worker.

Jeremy Shields pleaded guilty to murder, rape and tampering with
evidence in the death of his co-worker Wendy Sue Logsdon in January
2008. He will be eligible for parole.

The commonwealth's attorney had said the plea deal was
acceptable to the victim's family.

But during the sentencing Tuesday, WLKY-TV reported that
Logsdon's brother started yelling at Shields and had to be
restrained by officers.

Logsdon, a mother of three, disappeared after she was supposed
to meet Shields at a Louisville bar in January 2008. Her
half-burned body was found two days later in rural Hart County.
