HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The man accused of murder in the case of Angie Pipkin, who went missing in 2014 and whose remains were later found in the Big Pee Dee River, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter and obstruction of justice, according to Christina Barfield of Horry County Court Clerk’s Office.

Randy Gale Robinson's plea was accepted by Judge Steven H. John on Tuesday, November 8, and the sentencing is set for next week, Barfield added.

Pipkin, 32, was reported missing by her family in January of 2014. Robinson was arrested on Thursday, February 27 and charged with obstruction of justice in connection with Pipkin's disappearance. He was released on March 1 on a $5,000 bond. Five days later, he was arrested for murder.

The search for Pipkin continued into the spring of 2014, and officers began searching at the Pee Dee River landing in Darlington County after receiving a tip that something may have been thrown over the bridge near the landing.

Pipkin's remains were found on May 14, 2014, along the Big Pee Dee River in Florence County, and were later confirmed as hers through a DNA test.

Robinson remained in jail, awaiting his trial, until pleading guilty to manslaughter over two years later.
