Gutersloh told the jury he
accidentally killed Pleasants, by
choking her during sex.

He says he panicked and grabbed a
knife from the kitchen to make her
death look like a suicide.

Jurors still came back with the

maximum sentence... life in prison.

They also gave him five years for
defiling a corpse.

The developers would like to turn
this empty lot into an outdoor

thousand.

Last night, the counties'

planning commission held a public
hearing on the idea.

But earlier in the day, those we
spoke with told News 7, they're all for
the entertainment venue.

The amphitheater would be
privately operated, and could employ up
to 50 people per function.

If approved, the owners would
like to see it up and running by April
2008.
