Man pleads guilty to 2nd-degree murder in girlfriend’s death
BARRE, Vt. (AP) — The former boyfriend of a woman who was found dead on a roadside embankment in Vermont nearly two years ago has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a plea agreement.
WCAX-TV reports 62-year-old Randall Gebo faced trial this summer. He was charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of 59-year-old Cindy Cook.
Cook’s body was found in Middlesex in July 2017. An autopsy determined she was strangled.
Gebo was arrested in Illinois a few days after Cook’s body was found. Police say he was driving her car and using her credit cards.
Gebo also pleaded guilty to aggravated operation without owner’s consent, and no contest to animal cruelty.
His plea agreement calls for 20 to life in prison, all suspended except 17.5 years. He’s to be sentenced in June.
