Ex-Marine Pleads Guilty to Wife's Killing in Va.

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) - A former Marine who served in Afghanistan has pleaded guilty in the strangling death of his wife, surprising a northern Virginia court and his own attorney.

Twenty-six-year-old Caleb Crew of Woodbridge, Virginia, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in Fairfax County Circuit Court on Monday, the same day his trial was supposed to start.

The plea change was unexpected and came moments after a court clerk read the charge against him. Crew quietly told his attorney that he wanted to plead guilty. The judge accepted his plea.

Crew now faces life in prison when he's sentenced Jan. 9.

Last August, prosecutors say 31-year-old Andrea Crew had just dropped domestic abuse charges against her husband when he strangled the mother of two in the back seat of their Jeep.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
