JAMESTOWN, Ky. (AP) — A south-central Kentucky man has agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison for raping and strangling a pregnant jogger nearly two years ago.
The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/1i8wtdw ) reports 30-year-old Christopher W. Allman of Jamestown pleaded guilty in the death of 31-year-old Sarah Hart in June 2012. The plea Thursday spared Allman a possible death sentence.
He pleaded guilty to all charges, which were murder, fetal homicide, kidnapping, first-degree robbery, rape, tampering with evidence and being a persistent felony offender.
Sentencing will be May 6. The plea deal calls for Allman to serve a life sentence without possibility of parole.
Hart, who was about 10 weeks' pregnant with her fourth child, was on an early-morning run along U.S. 127 with her sister when she felt ill and decided to return to her car alone.
