Man found guilty of murder, burning girlfriends body
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A Lower Richland man has been sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty of killing his girlfriend.
The State reports that a judge on Friday handed down the sentence to Kenneth Gleaton.
A jury had found Gleaton guilty of killing 39-year-old Amanda Peele.
Firefighters and police in 2017 found Peele’s body in the smoldering debris of her home.
A coroner ruled she had died before the fire and had been bludgeoned, strangled and shot twice in the torso.
