Man Pleads Guilty in Death of Pregnant SC Woman


By Alicia Barnes

ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) _ An Anderson man has been sentenced to decades in prison for killing his pregnant girlfriend.

Solicitor Chrissy Adams says Keith Rucker received a total sentence of 47 years in prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to voluntary manslaughter in the death of 22-year-old Kacy Roberson and her unborn child.

After Roberson failed to pick up her two children from daycare, police say her stepfather found her in her apartment, covered in blood. The door had been kicked open, and Roberson had been strangled and hit in the head repeatedly.

Authorities say Rucker fled to Lavonia, Ga., after the January 2011 killings and later turned himself in to police.
