An eastern Idaho man has pleaded guilty to beating a 62-year-old woman to death with a baseball bat.
The Post Register reports 21-year-old Jameion Hernandez pleaded guilty to first-degree murder Tuesday in the death of Lisa Stukey -- as part of a plea agreement that would take the death penalty off the table.
Hernandez is facing a minimum sentence of ten years in prison.
In a recording of the hearing, he said he had confronted Stukey -- who he blamed for his family's financial struggles -- on June 16th of last year, after drinking alcohol.
Hernandez said he originally meant to only burglarize the woman’s home.
Hernandez told investigators he hit Stukey on the head with a baseball bat “multiple times.”
His sentencing is scheduled for July 16th in Bonneville County.
