Woman pleads guilty in husband's death

By The Associated Press

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A Lafayette County woman has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the 2010 beating death of her husband.

The Oxford Eagle reports 55-year-old Lou Ann White entered the plea this week. Circuit Judge Andrew Howorth delayed sentencing until after he receives a pre-sentence report.

White was arrested April 6, 2010, after the body of 60-year-old husband Henry White was found in their Lafayette County home by sheriff’s deputies.

Prosecutors say Henry White died from multiple and extensive wounds all over his body.
