Idaho inmate pleads guilty to 1983 killing

By On Your Side Newsroom. CREATED Apr 17, 2014

    OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- A man accused of raping and killing an 11-year-old Ogden girl in 1983 has pleaded guilty to charges of rape and manslaughter.

   After 46-year-old Gregory Seamons pleaded guilty in an Ogden court Thursday, a judge sentenced him to serve five years to life in prison.
   The sentence will run concurrently with a prison term Seamons has been serving in Idaho for a 2007 kidnapping conviction.
   Seamons was 15-years-old at the time Rebecca Lemberger's body was found in a shed. Authorities say she had been beaten to death with a rock.
   The case was unsolved until Seamons' DNA was matched up with evidence from the crime scene in 2011.
   The Standard-Examiner reports (http://bit.ly/1eEKhkk) Seamons will transfer to a Utah prison when his term in Idaho is complete.
