TELLICO PLAINS (WATE) - A federal prisoner pleaded guilty to a seven year old murder in Monroe County.

Charles Kaczmarczyk, 59, who is currently serving time in a federal prison in Kentucky, was indicted by the Monroe County grand jury on August 7.

He pleaded guilty Monday to one count of conspiracy to commit first degree murder and sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Officials say Robert J. McClancy was found dead in a recliner at his home at 215 Unicoi Lake Road in Tellico Plains on May 15, 2006.

Deputies found McClancy with a pistol in one hand and a bottle of pills in the other, but he had not been shot.

During the investigation, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials identified McClancy's friend Kaczmarczyk who stated that he and McClancy's wife Martha Ann conspired to kill Robert McClancy by forcing him to overdose on prescription medication.

According to Kaczmarczyk, he and Martha Ann, staged the scene to make it appear to be a suicide. Martha Ann McClancy is now Martha Ann Kacmarczyk and married to Charles. McClancy was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran.
