The officers entered the home to check on Mary Gilmore after her husband was shot, and Boyd stated in the court document that she was found dead in the residence with two gunshot wounds to her body.
Court documents suggest Timmy Hislope had been arrested multiple times in the past for incidents of alleged domestic violence involving Gilmore, in 2007 and 2010, and another woman in 1998.
Montgomery recommended 20 years for the murder charge and five years for each wanton endangerment charge, which would run concurrently (at the same time) for a total of 20 years. Hislope would be eligible for parole after 85 percent of his sentence is served, which is 17 years.
Montgomery said Hislope, through his attorney, Andrea Simpson, apologized to Gilmore’s family about what he’d done.
Montgomery also said her family was in the courtroom for the hearing.
“They were all in agreement with the plea,” Montgomery said.
Montgomery said sentencing is set for January 24, 2013.
