Richard Snyder pleaded guilty for murdering his girlfriend.
A Pickaway County man has been sentenced to 18 years to life in prison for the murder of his girlfriend.
43-year-old Richard Snyder pleaded guilty in Warren County Common Pleas Court in the shooting death of 29-year-old Nicole Berry last fall.
Authorities say Snyder and Berry were traveling to Lawrenceburg, Indiana, when the couple got into an argument. Snyder pulled into the Caesar Creek State Park and shot Berry multiple times. He then buried her body in a shallow grave.
Snyder was arrested a few days later after he checked himself in at a St Louis VA Hospital.
