Kenneth McCrimmon pled guilty today to the 2017 murder of Jennifer McCrimmon. Assistant District Attorney John Rumker prosecuted the case and Judge Andy Spivey presided over the proceedings. Jennifer's autopsy revealed her cause of death to be multiple blunt force trauma.
On Dec. 26, 2017, at 7:48 a.m., Coffee County deputies were dispatched to 1168 Truelove Road in reference to a possible deceased person. Upon arrival at the location, Kenneth McCrimmon told deputies that he had found his wife, Jennifer McCrimmon, lying in the floor not breathing and cold to the touch. Deputies entered the residence and located Jennifer McCrimmon, who was deceased. Coffee County detectives were notified and responded to the scene. Detectives requested assistance from the GBI Crime Scene Unit to assist in processing the scene. They determined the cause of death to be homicide.
Judge Spivey sentenced McCrimmon to life in prison. Under current Georgia law, McCrimmon, now 64 years old, is required to serve a minimum of 30 years in prison before he can even be considered for parole.
District Attorney George Barnhill would like to thank Deputy Rodney Courson, Jr., Sheriff Doyle Wooten, the GBI, and all other officers and witnesses involved in bringing this case to justice.
