Charles March pleaded guilty Wednesday afternoon in Kanawha Circuit Court in the slaying of his coworker, Kathy Goble.
The body concealment charge was dropped. Goble's dismembered body was found buried in March's yard at his home in Chesapeake.
March will be sentenced Jan. 29.
Eyewitness News Reporter Leslie Rubin will have more on this story at 6 p.m.
The Kanawha County man accused of slaying his Charleston coworker appeared in court Wednesday morning and appeared to be on the verge of making a plea.
In an appearance before Kanawha Circuit Judge Duke Bloom, Charles March said he did not want to put his family or the family of Kathy Goble, who he is accused of killing and burying her dismembered body in the yard of his home in Chesapeake, through the ordeal of a trial.
While March appeared to be on the verge of a plea, his lawyer said he is confused. March said he is not. March said he would like to have more time to consider his plea, and Bloom agreed to reconvene court at 3 p.m. Wednesday to take up the matter again.
