Augusta County Woman Pleads Guilty to Murdering Husband

Posted: Updated:

An Augusta County woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to murdering her husband and then dumping his body in the woods.

Debra Washington was arrested shortly after sheriff's deputies found her husband near a camp site off Coal Road last July.  She led them on a short car chase and then took off on foot into Grand View subdivision.  She then turned herself into Waynesboro police.

Washington also pleaded guilty to two firearms charges.  She will be sentenced December 17.
