Guilty Plea In Death Of Girlfriend Whose Skull Was Crushed

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A 42-year-old Bridgeport man has pleaded guilty to a murder charge in the death of his girlfriend, whose head was crushed with a 10 pound dumbbell.

The Connecticut Post reports Wilson “Junne” Cash is expected to face a 35-year-sentence under a recommendation from prosecutors.

They say Cash killed 46-year-old Christine Jeffreys last Sept. 27 after an argument over plans he had to commit robberies and buy crack cocaine.

The Post reports that when Superior Court Judge Robert Devlin asked Cash if he had taken drugs or alcohol before deciding to plead guilty on Monday, Cash responded, “I wish I had.”

Sentencing has been scheduled for Oct. 18.
