Elwood City man gets 10-20 for the murder of his girlfriend

ELLWOOD CITY, Pennsylvania - An Ellwood city man, who strangled his live-in girlfriend and then duct taped her face, will spend 10 to 20 years in prison.

Keith Wolfrey pleaded guilty to third degree murder and abuse of a corpse charges in the 2011 killing of Joie Lordi.

Police say Wolfrey told them he remembers arguing with Lordi while moving out, putting his hands around her throat, and covering her face with duct tape before he went to bed.

He says the couple's six-month-old baby woke him up the next day.
