Accused killer's letter: Woman's death was accident

In a letter to the Johnson City Press, the man charged with killing a friend and dumping her body off the Butler Bridge claims the woman’s death was an accident and said panic led to him tossing her body into a lake.
Steven Odell Bennett, 31, is scheduled for a preliminary hearing today in Washington County Sessions Court on second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse charges.
In the letter, Bennett explained his version of what happened Sept. 29, the night Vonda Berry Marshall Donaldson died.
Details from Bennett's letter, including his account of Donaldson's death during sex and the reasons he dumped her body into the lake, are included in the full version of this article in the Thursday, Oct. 11, edition of Johnson City Press. You'll find the article on the front page.
