Posted: Updated:

RHEA COUNTY, TN (Times Free Press) -- Brenda K. Brown, the woman charged in the 2011 shooting deaths of two elderly Bledsoe County sisters, has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder charges and has accepted a sentence of life without parole, according to authorities in Bledsoe County.

Bledsoe County Sheriff's Department investigator Ricky Seals said Brown, 50, was transported to Rhea County Circuit Court today for a hearing before Judge Buddy Perry. Seals said Brown was tearful when discussing her plea with court officials and left the courthouse crying.

The investigator said family members of the victims, Elizabeth Brown, 82, and Elizabeth Brown's sister, Billy Sue Blaylock, 79, were "relieved" by news of the plea.

The sisters' bodies were found Aug. 16, 2011, on their property on Mills Dam Road.
