Bainbridge- Ronnie Vickers is accused of kidnapping and shooting his wife to death last October 14th.

       Under the plea agreement, he will be sentenced to life in prison for the murder and 10-years for aggravated assault in connection with the case. The victim's family was informed of the plea agreement and did not object. "I told them I would take it to trial, or plead out if they wanted to plead it out. After thinking about it and meeting as a family, they decided they wanted to plead and get it done with.", says District Attorney Joe Mulholland.

       Vickers kidnapped his wife by pretending to be broken-down on the side of the road. He then took her to the country, shot her 10-times, then ran over her body with his car.
