Elmore Co. man sentenced to life imprisonment

MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) - A man who pleaded guilty to murdering his girlfriend in January 2007 will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

An Elmore County jury found Brandon Elmore guilty Wednesday.

Elmore plead guilty before the trial, but because it's a capital murder case it had to go to trial.

Elmore murdered his girlfriend, Ashley Trimm, stuffed her body inside her car and set the vehicle on fire.
