Boone man pleads guilty to killing wife, mother-in-law
Timothy Parsons admitted Tuesday to cutting the throats of his wife and mother-in-law last May.
Parsons, 39, took responsibility for the killings for the first time in the Boone County courtroom. It was part of a plea deal struck with prosecutors. Charges of sexual assault and kidnapping were dropped as a part of the deal.
Parsons is charged with killing Gloria Kinder, Parson's mother-in-law, and his wife Leigh Anne Kinder-Parsons in their Bloomingrose home using a knife. Police allege the fight began with Kinder-Parsons over money.
"You will see there was absolutely no mercy shown to either one of these victims," said Boone County Prosecutor Keith Randolph.
Parsons is scheduled to be sentenced May 1. Randolph expects those hearings to last all day while the prosecuting lays out in detail their case for life sentences without the possibility of parole.
