DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) - Kenneth Wayne McCrimmon pled guilty Wednesday to the 2017 murder of his wife, Jennifer McCrimmon, according to Assistant District Attorney John Rumker, who prosecuted the case.

Judge Andy Spivey sentenced McCrimmon to life in prison. McCrimmon, now 64, is required to serve a minimum of 30 years in prison before he can even be considered for parole, according to A.D.A. Ian Sansot.

“I would like to thank Deputy Rodney Courson, Jr., Sheriff Doyle Wooten, the GBI, and all other officers and witnesses involved in bringing this case to justice,” said District Attorney George Barnhill.

McCrimmon called the police to his home on Truelove Road just before 8 a.m. December 26, 2017, saying his wife was on the floor, not breathing, and cold to the touch.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Crime Scene Unit took up the case, and an autopsy determined that the death was a homicide. The cause of death was found to be multiple blunt force trauma.
