Woman pleads guilty to lying
AKRON (AP) -- A Pennsylvania woman admitted she lied under oath when she told a grand jury she was with a man accused of killing a millionaire doctor on the Ohio Turnpike.
Charlene McFrazier, 21, of Leetsdale, Pa., near Pittsburgh, pleaded guilty Tuesday to perjury in U.S. District Court. She had told a grand jury that she was with her boyfriend, Damian Bradford, the night Dr. Gulam Moonda was fatally shot on the roadway near Cleveland in May 2005.
Bradford, 24, of Monaca, Pa., also near Pittsburgh, has pleaded innocent to a two-count indictment in the death of Moonda, 69, a urologist from Hermitage, Pa.
The victim was shot and killed when he pulled off the side of the turnpike south of Cleveland to change drivers. His wife said a gunman emerged from another vehicle, shot and robbed her husband and fled.
Bradford could face life in prison if convicted of interstate stalking. He allegedly was romantically involved with Moonda's wife, Donna Moonda, 46, who has not been charged.
McFrazier, who faces between 10 and 16 months in prison when sentenced Aug. 24, would not say if she plans to testify against Bradford.
