Man Sentenced To 100 Years In Drowning Death

ELKTON, Md. (AP) — A Delaware man who pleaded guilty to drowning a woman in a bathtub in a home in Elkton has been sentenced to 100 years in prison.

Jeffrey Cordell, 27, of Middletown, Del., told the judge at sentencing on Friday to give him the penalty Erica Green’s family asked for. He said he was perplexed as to why he killed Green.

The Cecil Whig reports that Cordell pleaded guilty in November to first-degree murder. He drowned Green, 27, in a bathtub in a home on Locust Lane in Elkton on May 18, 2010 and set the house on fire.
