TACOMA, Wash. (AP) – A 52-year-old Tacoma, Washington man has pleaded guilty to killing a woman with a baseball bat and gun on federal land in 2018.
Prosecutors say Bobbie Anson Pease entered a guilty plea to second-degree murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm in U.S. District Court in Tacoma on Tuesday.
Pease and co-defendant Jeremy Warren killed the woman in a wooded area on Joint Base Lewis-McChord property after accusing her of stealing a drug pipe and pocket knife.
Her body was later discovered by railroad workers.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed to recommend a 26-year prison term when he’s sentenced on October 22.
