The husband of St. Louis radio personality Nan Wyatt has admitted that he killed her and has been sentenced to life in prison. Thomas Erbland had earlier rejected a prosecution offer that he plead guilty. Wyatt was found dead of gunshot wounds in the bedroom of her Twin Oaks home February 18th of 2002. Erbland confessed to killing his wife upon arrest, but declined to formally plead guilty until today. The plea came after a morning discussions between Erbland’s lawyer and a lawyer representing Wyatt’s son, 8-year-old Drake. In St. Louis County Circuit Court, prosecutors withdrew the state’s charge of first-degree murder and substituted a charge of second-degree murder. Erbland, who turns 45 next week, won’t be eligible for parole until he’s 70. Wyatt was a top radio personality at KMOX.
