BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Bridgeport man has pleaded guilty to raping and murdering a 21-year-old pregnant Stratford woman in 2001.
Twenty-8-year-old Michael McClendon accepted a plea deal in Bridgeport Superior Court Thursday, pleading guilty to the killing to be spared the death penalty. He is to receive life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Police arrested McClendon in 2006 after he was matched to a palm print lifted from the crime scene.
The victim, 21-year-old Shani Baldwin, was found by relatives on March 28, 2001, in a second-floor bedroom of her home. She had been bound, raped and stabbed several times. Her 2-year-old daughter was found in the home unharmed.
Sentencing is set for Dec. 12.
