A South Carolina man who murdered a woman he was dating and left her body in a ditch in 2017 pleaded guilty was sentenced this week to 45 years in prison. 

Raymond Nolan, 30, killed Shelby Head, 40, in November 2017 but her body wasn’t found until February 2018 in a Marlboro County drainage ditch, police said, according to WPDE-TV in South Carolina. 

Head had originally been reported missing by her estranged husband and had to be identified through dental records.
