A Tacoma man pleaded guilty on Monday to murdering her pregnant ex-girlfriend. Colin Patrick Dudley, 40, was sentenced in Pierce County Superior Court to 26 years, and 8 months in prison for first-degree murder in the domestic violence killing of 33-year-old Kassandra Cantrell. That sentence is at the high end of the standard sentencing range for similar cases, reported Kiro7.

Cantrell was missing for nearly a month when a Pierce County Sheriff’s Department’s investigation led detectives to Chambers Creek Road on Sept. 22, 2020. The victim’s body was found in trash bags about 100 yards down a hillside. Detectives noted what appeared to be stab wounds on the victim’s body, and an autopsy noted fractures to her skull, according to the declaration for determination of the probable cause.
