Ky Man Pleads Guilty in Beating Death of Woman

By  | 

LAWRENCEBURG, Ky. (AP) -- A Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to murder in the beating death of a woman.

WLEX-TV in Lexington reported that 47-year-old Terrence Allen Cram also entered a guilty plea Tuesday to charges of tampering with physical evidence and fraudulent use of a credit card over a 6 month period.

Police say Cram beat 49-year-old Tena L. McNeely to death in January 2011 at their home in Anderson County. McNeely was Cram's landlord at the time.

The coroner said McNeely died of blunt-force trauma to the head. She was the daughter of state Trooper James McNeely, who died in the line of duty during a flood rescue in Frankfort in 1972.

Cram's sentencing date is scheduled for June 4.
