A woman who stowed her boyfriend’s battered body in a closet after fatally beating him with a baseball bat has pleaded guilty to manslaughter.
Thomasine Bennett, 67, entered a guilty plea for voluntary manslaughter for killing Walter Clark, 63.
In an interview with the Washington Post, family members said they don’t believe Bennett and Clark had a romantic relationship, and instead believe Bennett killed Clark over a $5,200 insurance check.
Bennett was arrested and she has been in custody ever since.
If the plea deal is accepted, she will be sentenced to ten years in prison.
Judge Jose Lopez will determine whether or not to accept the deal in court on Sept. 22.
