GLASGOW, Ky. (AP) - A south-central Kentucky man has pleaded guilty to charges in connection with the death of his wife last June.

The Glasgow Daily Times (http://bit.ly/1xM6ndU ) reports 36-year-old John W. Amis of Glasgow pleaded guilty Monday to first-degree manslaughter and promoting prostitution.

Amis took his wife, 37-year-old Lorine Dawn Labombard of Glasgow, to a hospital there on June 16, and she was pronounced dead. He said she experienced a drug overdose.

An autopsy determined Labombard died of blunt-force trauma.

Amis was arrested in July at a campsite at a state park in southern Ohio.

Barren County Circuit Judge Phillip Patton indicated Amis could face up to 15 years in prison. Sentencing is set for March 2.
