CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – Horry County Clerk of Court’s office confirms Randy Gale Robinson submitted a plea Tuesday afternoon in connection with the killing of Angie Pipkin.

Court officials say Robinson pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and obstruction of justice.

Robinson is charged with murder and obstruction of justice in the death of 32-year-old Angie Pipkin. Authorities say Robinson killed Pipkin and disposed of her dismembered body at a landing on the Great Pee Dee River in Darlington County.

Pipkin was last seen on January 16, 2014 getting into a car at the IGA on Main Street in Aynor, officials say. She was later seen on security cameras around 9:30 p.m. at the Wilco Food Mart at 6222 Highway 707 in Myrtle Beach.

On May 14, 2014, investigators announced remains found in East Florence off Paper Mill Road belonged to Pipkin.

Sentencing for Robinson will be held next week. The guilty plea was submitted to Judge Steven John.
