Posted: Apr 13, 2018 3:40 PM Updated:

SMYRNA, Del.-A Smyrna man, who pleaded guilty to his wife’s murder before authorities recovered her remains, will spend the next 25 years in prison.

A Superior Court judge sentenced Cortez Hamilton, 35, for his January 2018 guilty plea to murder second degree.

In January 2015, Hamilton’s 35-year-old wife Keisha was reported missing. A search of the Hamilton’s home showed a large amount of blood in an upstairs hallway.

Hamilton fled to Indiana with his two young children, where Indiana State Police arrested him a few weeks later after a nationwide Amber Alert.

As part of Hamilton’s plea agreement, he provided information that led police to the discovery of Keisha’s remains near Smyrna.

A Superior Court judge sentenced Hamilton to 25 years in prison, followed by 1 year of work release then 2 years of probation

    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.
