Arkansas man sentenced in football stadium killing

Posted: Updated:

VAN BUREN, Ar., (KNOE 8 News) - 44-year-old Ronald Anthony Cash has been sentenced to 35 years in prison after pleading guilty to killing his estranged girlfriend in a football stadium parking lot a year ago.

Prosecutors said Cash shot 40-year-old Tammie Lea Schlude, then called his ex-wife and father to tell them what he had done.

Schlude's body was found Feb. 5, 2012, at Blakemore Field with a gunshot wound to the back of her head. Investigators said Cash told them he had killed the woman because she was seeing another man.

Prosecutors had originally charged Cash with capital murder but didn't pursue the death penalty 

The trial was scheduled to start next Monday.
