Clinton Anthony Smith plead guilty to the murder of his estranged wife in March 2017. 

GREENWOOD, S.C. (FOX CAROLINA) Solicitor David Stumbo said in a press release Monday that a Greenwood man has plead guilty to the murder of his estranged wife in 2017. 

42-year-old Clinton Anthony Smith was sentenced to 37 years in prison for the murder of 40-year-old Kimberly Smith. 

The couple had been separated for four weeks prior to the incident. 

Greenwood County deputies said they were called to Kimberly Smith's residence on March 10, 2017. 

Deputies said Smith arrived at the residence around 2:45 p.m., kicked in the front door, and fatally shot Kimberly four times.

Her children reported that they saw their step-dad's car leaving the area shortly after shots were fired. 

Deputies said they were able to locate Smith's car and arrest him after he fully confessed to killing his estranged wife. 

Clinton Smith plead guilty Monday and is not eligible for parole.
