Baker pleads No Contest to Beach Gate murder

  A Maryland man has entered a plea of no contest to a charge of first degree murder in connection to the brutal slaying of a woman at the Beach Gate Motel in Colonial Beach on Oct. 3, 2012.

  Elizabeth "Niecey" Thompson was beaten, stabbed 46 times and left her lying in her nightgown in a pool of blood on the motel parking lot. Pleading no contest to the crime Thursday was William Baker, 49, of Indian Head, MD., Thompson's former boyfriend.

 

  Westmoreland County Commonwealth's Attorney Julia Sichol said by entering the no contest plea, Baker was admitting the state has enough evidence to convict him. Baker will be back in Westmoreland County Circuit Courton Sept 20 for sentencing.

  After attacking Thompson, Baker fled the scene and was the object of an intense search by Colonial Beach police, Westmoreland sheriff's deputies and Virginia State Police. Sheriff's officers found Baker about five hours later walking along Route 205.

  Witnesses told officers Baker repeatedly stabbed Thompson with a large kitchen knife as she banged on the door of the motel manager begging for help. Investigators found Baker's DNA at the scene and found Thompson's DNA on Baker's shirt.

  Baker is being held at the Northern Neck Regional jail pending the completion of a pre-sentence report and his next appearance in court.  As a result of this incident, and others, the Beach Gate Motel has been closed by authorities.
