    Franklin Co. [Virginia] man pleads guilty to killing wife; receives 25-year sentence
    Philip Kingery of Hardy fled the state after the murder and turned himself in last summer in Missouri. His attorney said a mixture of steroid abuse and an addiction to Starbucks coffee led to Kingery's "diminished capacity."
    By Janelle Rucker | The Roanoke Times

    Philip Kingery pleaded guilty today to killing his wife Rose last summer.

    Rose Kingery's body was found July 17 in a barrel inside a shed near the couple's home on Coopers Cove Road in Hardy, Franklin County Commonwealth's Attorney Cliff Hapgood said.

    This morning after the plea, county Circuit Court Judge William Alexander sentenced Philip Kingery to 25 years in prison for second degree murder and use of a firearm in a felony.

    Kingery, 48, was originally charged with first degree murder, but the inability to prove he plotted in advance to kill his wife necessitated the lesser charge, said Hapgood.

    "I apologize to all family and all friends," Kingery said when Alexander permitted him to speak. "If I could turn back the clock, I would."

    In addition to the sentence, Alexander directed Kingery to have no contact with his adult daughter, Ashleigh Kester.

    Rose Kingery was shot twice, but was not mutilated or tortured, Hapgood said.

    Philip Kingery fled the state after the murder and turned himself in July 25 in Fenton, Mo.

    His attorney, Tony Anderson, said a mixture of steroid abuse and an addiction to Starbucks coffee led to Kingery's "diminished capacity" at the time of the murder.
    Also what's with the not "plotted in advance"???

    Why not the full 40 years?

    Well, 25 & 48 = 73, I'd say what he has left after that won't be all that great!

    Let's hope he get's to serve it all until he's 73.
    Coming out of prison at that age with no skill and a record will make his life very hard. If he's lucky he can wash dishes until he finds a weapon for some quick cash and back to three hots and a cot.
    May as well put him down if it's a sure thing he did it.
    Wether he plotted this murder for long is irrelivant to me.

    And this is one reason I don't do Starbuck!

    Starbucks is Evil!!!!

    "His attorney, Tony Anderson, said a mixture of steroid abuse and an addiction to Starbucks coffee led to Kingery's "diminished capacity" at the time of the murder."

    Nope, not at all his OWN fault. If he pointed a gun at his wife AND pulled the trigger TWICE (that we know of)......that sounds an awful lot like 'premediated' to me. (I've even heard some refer to that as a CLUE!)


    Hope he ...........well, nevermind.

    Phil was my boss

    He was horrible, as this was happening I found these "articles" written by him. Looks premeditated to me.

    I emailed the local news and informed the police. They both laughed and the police questioned me but didn't seem to care about this evidence.

    I guess I'll never be able to use that excuse. Not only do I not use steroids. I wouldn't pay half the price for the crap they call coffee at Starbucks!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Thanks for sharing your insight.

    The courts seem to be going more and more to the defendants side of the scale and justice has that blindfold on real tight lately.
