Amy Bosley Pleads Guilty To Murder

The murder trial of Amy Bosley has come to a surprising end in a Campbell County courtroom. 

The wife of murder victim Robert Bosley told Judge Fred Stine that she in fact did pull the trigger that killed her husband. 

The mother of two was apparently not advised by her attorneys to enter the plea and they did not sign off on the deal. 

Bosley's children ages seven and ten were found competent to testify and Bosley said she didn't want to subject her children to the stresses of having to testify against their mother.  The children were in the house reportedly asleep the night that Bosley fired six shots at her husband. 

Bosley also pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence. 

As part of the agreement, Bosley is expected to be sentenced to 20 years for murder and five years for the tampering charge.  The sentences will be served concurrently.  A sentencing hearing is scheduled for November 2nd. 

Police said Bosley killed her husband in May of 2005 in their Campbell County cabin.  Bosley claimed that a man broke into their home and killed her husband.  Police said that they never found evidence to support her claim. 

A civil suit filed by the family of Robert Bosley is expected to be cleared up next week.
