PRESTONSBURG, Ky. — A defendant charged in connection with the death of Wesley Hook entered a guilty plea to amended charges on Tuesday.

Krystle Williams, 34, of Pikeville, pleaded guilty to facilitation to kidnapping and tampering with physical evidence in Floyd Circuit Court. As part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to dismiss a murder charge against her.

Williams had been charged along with Enos Little, 48, of Lexington, and Eric DeLeon, 34, of Nicholasville, after Hook’s body was discovered in a burned-out car in Pike County. It is believed Hook was held against his will in a room at the Alpike Motel, in Ivel, and later died there.

Williams will be sentenced Nov. 18.

Little is scheduled to go on trial Dec. 6. DeLeon is next expected to appear in court Nov. 4.
