A prosecutor says a fifth person has pleaded guilty to charges involving a western Kentucky slaying.
The Paducah Sun reports Jamie Taylor pleaded guilty to murder and kidnapping in a deal that calls for her to serve a life sentence with eligibility for parole in 20 years in the slaying of 21-year-old CaSondra Evrard, whose body was found in December 2010 near a creek. She had faced the death penalty.
Taylor's husband, Mark Taylor, and daughter, Jasmine Taylor, are also charged with murder and kidnapping in the case, and prosecutors said they may call Jamie Taylor to testify in their upcoming trials.
Four other defendants in the case have entered guilty pleas on various charges.
Jamie Taylor will be formally sentenced after the trials of her husband and daughter.
