TN - Three killed by Glenn Nash, Margo Freshwater in 3-state crime spree, Dec 1966
Ex-fugitive Freshwater pleads guilty to '66 murder
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- A woman who escaped from a Tennessee prison and lived under an alias for 32 years before being captured could be granted her freedom in the next few days, her attorney says, after she reached a plea agreement with prosecutors while awaiting a retrial.
Margo Freshwater entered a "best interest" guilty plea in a Memphis court Friday in the 1966 shooting death of liquor store clerk Hillman Robbins. She was sentenced to 25 years in prison after entering the plea, which sets aside her previous conviction, credits her for time served and allows her to maintain her innocence.
