A Johnson County man admits he beat a woman nearly to death last year.

Paintsville Police called it one of the worst crimes they had ever seen.

Investigators say last October, Franklin Ross beat the woman with a chair and then stabbed her repeatedly.

Ross pleaded guilty to assault and several other charges.

Officials say he agreed to a ten year sentence.

He will be formally sentenced on August 5th.
