Cross confesses to murder, avoids death penalty

By  | 

ARDMORE - Brandon Ray Cross, an Ardmore man accused of strangling his wife, has confessed in exchange for his own life.

Cross pleaded guilty to first degree murder charges Monday.

The district attorney was seeking the death penalty, but Cross will only face life in prison as part of the plea deal.

Ardmore police say Cross strangled his wife Mendy at their home in July after a fight over sex, money, and children escalated.
