Alton Glenn Beadles, who pleaded guilty in December to the murder of Wendy Cash in January 2017, is scheduled to be sentenced at 2 p.m. on Friday in Halifax County Circuit Court.
Beadles pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in connection with the shooting of Wendy Perkins Cash that occurred in northern Halifax County.
The commonwealth moved to nol pros another charge against Beadles in December for use of a firearm in commission of a felony.
Beadles, a 58-year-old Nathalie man, and the 44-year-old Cash were romantically involved, but the relationship took a deadly turn on Jan. 18, 2017 following an argument between the two, according to Halifax County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tracy Martin.
Beadles was arrested following a domestic disagreement that ended with Cash being shot in back of an Epperson Trail residence.
Sheriff’s office deputies were dispatched to a reported shooting at 1034 Epperson Trail on Jan. 18, 2017, with officers finding Cash apparently deceased from a gunshot wound.
An autopsy later revealed Cash died from a gunshot wound to the abdomen from a .38 caliber handgun.
