Mother of confessed teen killer pleads guilty

Posted: Updated:

A jury trial was expected to get underway this morning in the case against Judith Phelps.  Her son accepted a plea last week to murder charges in the death of his father.  Judith Phelps is charged with tampering with evidence and concealing a death in the case.

Monday morning, attorneys announced there would be no trial as they had agreed to a negotiated plea in the case. Judith Phelps pled guilty to three of eight counts in the case. She received a sentence of 15 years with 12 to serve behind bars, 3 on probation.
