FISHERMAN PLEADS GUILTY TO MANSLAUGHTER IN BEATING DEATH OF CREWMAN IN PORT OF ILWACO

May 12, 2010 - In a plea deal, Erin Rieman plead guilty to one count of first degree manslaughter for the beating death of John Adkins. The crime occurred on July 5, 2009, in the Port of Ilwaco aboard the fishing vessel TIGER. After a bout of drinking, Rieman allegedly beat and chocked Adkins to death with an electrical cord. Rieman then wrapped Adkins' body with fishing weights and dumped it at sea. Adkins was an owner of the TIGER and had hired Rieman to Captain the boat because of Adkins' lack of experience. Reiman faces up to 11 years in jail based upon sentencing guidelines.
