Letcher County woman enters guilty plea in murder case

LETCHER COUNTY, Ky, (WKYT) - A Letcher County woman pleaded guilty Monday in connection to the murder of her husband.

Drad Fleming's body was found inside a burned truck in June. His wife, Stephanie Fleming is accused in his death.

Family members of the victim were in the courtroom as Fleming entered her plea.

"The family of course needs and is entitled to have some closure. We can't say that they will have that closure until this case is completed," says Edison Banks, Commonwealth's Attorney.

The recommended sentence for Fleming is life in prison. She will be formally sentenced on April 16th.
