An eight-year-old cold case with a connection to Elizabethtown came to a close Wednesday when Daniel Paynter pleaded guilty to murder in a Cincinnati courthouse.
Paynter, 57, pleaded guilty to murdering his wife, Lori Paynter. The 35-year-old woman’s mostly nude body was discovered near a trash bin at the Bluegrass Inn on East Dixie Avenue on Dec. 18, 2002.
She was strangled, shot in the head multiple times and identified only through fingerprints. Her clothes were found four months later in Hamilton County, Ohio.
