Admitted Wife Killer Cops Plea Deal

Elyria, OH - An admitted wife killer has struck a plea deal to avoid going to trial.

Robert Thompson Jr. pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and rape in the strangling death of his wife, Wendy.

Now, Thompson will be sentenced to 24-years to life in prison.

If he'd gone to trial and lost, he could have faced life in prison without the possibility of parole.
