Man who apologized on Facebook before slaying pleads guilty

September 13, 2017 - 8:51 AM

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. - A Kentucky man who made a public apology on Facebook minutes before the mother of his infant child was shot to death has pleaded guilty to killing her.

The Daily News reports 24-year-old Ethan Reid pleaded guilty Tuesday in Allen Circuit Court to a charge of murder-domestic violence. There was no plea deal. He fatally shot 20-year-old Kayla Hodges last October at a Scottsville residence.

Police say Reid posted an apology on a Facebook account shortly before the shooting. It said in part, "Sorry guys. I'm truly not this bad of a person. I've been pushed to this point over of time."

Prosecutor Clint Willis said he had planned to put Reid on trial because the victim's family didn't want a plea deal.

Reid will be sentenced on Nov. 29.
