Who is Anna Marie Choudhary? Woman who helped father kill sister's BF so he could marry daughter gets 40 years
Anna Marie's father Larry Paul McClure has already been sentenced to life while her sister Amanda McClure has been given 40 years in prison
Anna Marie Choudhury, 33, has been convicted of second-degree murder over the death of 38-year-old John Thomas McGuire, who was her sister Amanda McClure's boyfriend. She was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
In a twisted incest plot, Anna Marie killed McGuire so that her sister Amanda would be able to get married to their 55-year-old father Larry Paul McClure. The incident occurred on February 14, 2019, at a West Virginia home where McGuire was reportedly tortured for three days before he was killed. McGuire's remains were found in a shallow grave many months later at McClure's house.
In fact, it was Larry who confessed to taking part in committing the crime on November 4, 2019, resulting in the arrest of his two daughters.
At her hearing, Anna Marie confessed that her father, who happens to be a registered sex offender, had lured McGuire into playing a "trust game" wherein McGuire’s feet were tied up. This was after Anna Marie and her father went to Indiana where they picked Amanda and Thomas and brought them back to West Virginia. The court also heard that all four of them were doing drugs at the time. She then said that "things started to get strange".
She then recalled that it was Amanda who hit McGuire with a wine bottle when he had tried to escape out of the bindings. Larry's testimony also revealed that McGuire had been tortured for three days beginning on Valentine's day in 2019. McGuire, according to the hearing, was given a "bad batch" of homemade meth.
Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Dennie Morgan reportedly said, "This game of trust was one of the most evil things I’ve heard of." It was also heard that McGuire's body was first buried intact, but was reportedly later dug up, dismembered, and reburied in two different places. Two weeks after the incident occurred, Amanda married her father Larry and her sister Anna Marie served as their witness.
Speaking of her father's behavior at this time, Anna Marie said, "He sat down and I don’t know, it was a grin that I’ll never be able to describe," and added, "But as John sat up and bent over to untie his feet, and it all happened so quick, but Amanda stood up and grabbed that bottle and bashed him over the back of the head with it."
She then said, "And the next thing I know John had reared up and was leaning back against the wall holding his head. And that’s when Larry looked at me and told me if I knew what was best for my children and wanted them to live, I would follow all instructions that were given to me from that moment on." She then said, "They stood over me and told me I needed to finish it and needed to strangle him, so that’s what I did,"
Larry, 55, of Kentucky, was jailed for life without the possibility of parole for first-degree murder last year, while Amanda was sentenced to 40 years in prison for second-degree murder.
