It has been nearly nine years since Lori Ross Paynter went missing.
Her killer has now admitted that he murdered his wife.
Daniel T. Paynter, 57, originally from Cynthiana, entered a guilty plea in a Hamilton County, Ohio, court last Wednesday, July 6.
“He apologized to his family and to her family,” said Megan Shananhan, assistant Hamilton County prosecutor. “He said he wanted to give everybody closure.”
Shananhan described Paynter’s apology as “shallow” and not heart-felt.
