Dad helped daughter ‘kill her boyfriend by injecting him with meth so he could have sex with his own child’ – The SunJuly 28, 2020
A REGISTERED SEX offender father who married his daughter has pled guilty after helping her kill her boyfriend by smashing a wine bottle over his head and then injecting him with crystal meth.
Larry McClure, 55, along with his daughter Amanda McClure, 31, of Minnesota, both pled guilty to killing Thomas McGuire, 38, on February 14, 2019 at a Skygusty, West Virginia home they were renting out.
The duo, along with Amanda McClure's sister Anna Marie Choudhary, 32, of Boone, North Carolina, are alleged to have murdered McGuire by striking him with a wine bottle, tying him up, injecting two vials of methamphetamine into him, and then strangling him on Valentine's Day last year.
McGuire's body was found several months later in a shallow grave near the Skygusty residence.
On September 24, 2019, West Virginia State Police officials made the grizzly discovery of McGuire's remains following a disclosure by Larry McClure to his whereabouts.
In a November 4, 2019 letter Larry McClure wrote, he confessed to the court his involvement in the crime and provided details following his arrest that led to the arrest of his daughters.
In the letter, McClure wrote "I just want it over. No trial, no taxpayers money spent for a trial. It is hard for the State of WV to fight against itself because I plead guilty/no contest."
Both Larry McClure's letter and Amanda McClure's plea hearing corroborated similar details of McGuire's murder as was found in the police investigation.
However, there is no clear motive yet for the murder said McDowell County Prosecuting Attorney Emily Miller, given that the father and daughter have "given different reasons."
Larry McClure, a registered sex offender, was arrested on a registry offense when he told police where they could find McGuire's body. According to West Virginia State Police Trooper K.M. Saddler, who was one of the responding officers at Skygusty residence, McGuire's body was originally buried in the backyard but later moved to a side yard where police had found it.
"On or about Feb. 14, Mr. John McGuire was struck in the head with a bottle of wine, then tied up, and then injected with two vials of methamphetamine," Saddler said in his testimony. "After the injection, he was strangled."
McClure's letter detailed McGuire's strangulation and what roles both his daughters played in the homicide. His letter placed emphasis on his daughter Amanda McClure as spearheading the murder, but did not pinpoint her motive.
"I cannot tell you why Amanda wanted John McGuire dead," McClure wrote in the letter and alleged his daughter was spending McGuire’s monthly Social Security checks. "I am asking for this to be over and not waisting [sic] the taxpayers money and hurting the family members on both sides of this. John McGuires family and my family."
McClure said will likely not see the parole board in 15 years. "All I can do is hope for mercy on this, but my sentence on this really does not matter because I am old and in bad health. I will never live to see the parole board," he wrote. "I will say I am sorry for my part in this crime to both my family and John McGuire’s family."
Saddler's criminal complaint stated Larry and Amanda McClure were biological father and daughter and that the two were romantically involved at the address where McGuire was found. "Larry McClure and Amanda McClure did engage in sexual intercourse at the aforementioned address," he wrote in the complaint. Saddler also said Anna Marie Choudhary was involved in the murder as well.
The father and daughter killers were married in Tazewell County, Virginia on March 11, 2019, barely three weeks after killing McGuire. A United Methodist Church minister officiated the illegal marriage between father and daughter.
Amanda McClure accepted a plea deal today, joining her father who pled guilty on July 8. The two are charged with first-degree murder.
As part of her plea deal, Amanda McClure has agreed to testify against her sister.
