WHEELING, W.Va. — Fifteen years in prison is the sentence for a Mingo County woman who shot and killed a Louisiana man at an Ohio County hotel in July 2017.
Freda Davis, 38, was sentenced Monday in Ohio County Circuit Court via video conference for the death of Terry Pendergrist, Jr., an oil and gas worker.
Pendergrist’s death at the Wheeling’s McLure Hotel had originally been ruled a suicide.
It was early 2019 before Davis was charged with his murder.
Last week, she entered an Alford plea, admitting no guilt, for voluntary manslaughter.
