A Des Moines man accused of shooting his estranged wife to death on Interstate 235 in Des Moines has reached a plea agreement. Fifty-three-year-old Randy Lee Davis was charged with first-degree murder soon after his wife was found dead following a four-car crash in September of 2008.
Police at first thought 41-year-old Michelle Davis died in the accident, but later determined she was shot. Witnesses reported seeing a red pickup like the one Davis drove in the area before the accident. Randy Davis was to go on trial May 4th, but has pled guilty to second-degree murder. Davis now faces a 50-year prison sentence.
