Man pleads guilty to West Virginia rape-slaying
Fred Dwane Douty II, 29, plead guilty to the rape and murder of a Martinsburg, WV woman whose body was found in a remote area in northeastern Berkley County in spring 2007. He was with co-defendant Anthony Charles Juntilla of Hedgeville, WV when they took a woman, later identified as Tina Marie Starcher back to Juntilla’s house. Douty, of Martinsburg, said both suspects rape her, then Juntilla carried Starcher upstairs to a bathtub and stabbed her to death. They then hid the body in a remote area in a blue tub and tried to eliminate DNA evidence by putting cleaning fluid on it.
