The Pike County man who shot and killed his girlfriend, with the couples daughter nearby, is off to prison.
33 year-old Christopher Morton is sentenced to 80 years.
He admits to killing 24 year-old Kelsie McDonald last October.
Kelsie's parents tell Eyewitness News they're okay with his plea agreement.
Rusty McDonald, the victim's father said, "we're just didn't want to have to drag everybody through the murder trial and if we could get the 80 years we were happy with that."
Through that plea agreement , Morton waived his right to  appeal.
