Timberville Man Pleads to Missing Woman's Death

The husband of a Virginia woman who disappeared 14 years ago has pleaded guilty to killing her.

Forty-five-year-old Lawrence Gaudenzi of Timberville pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Wednesday as his trial on a first-degree murder charge was under way in Caroline County Circuit Court.

As part of the plea deal, Gaudenzi doesn't have say what happened to his wife Lisa's body.

Lisa Gaudenzi's parents, Joe Marto and his former wife, Kathleen Marto, said the plea didn't bring closure. But Joe said it did bring relief, while Kathleen said it gave her justice.

A sentencing date hasn't been set.
