On September 28, 2000, Eric Plunkett’s friends told their resident advisor that they hadn’t seen him all day. It was strange because he was social and liked to keep his door open.

A judge sentenced Mthulisi Ndlovu, 39, to 20 years Friday for the October, 2011, murder of his live-in girlfriend, Mary Mushapaidzi, 42, in their Bonney Lake, Wash., home. Ndlovu initially told police that Mushapaidzi had gone for a run and never came back, but later admitted to beating her with pruning shears and strangling her during an argument over dirty dishes.
