February 11, 2024 - El Dorado County Sheriff's Office officials report that on January 19th, 2024, Michael Thompson pled guilty to the crime of 2nd degree Murder for the killing of his girlfriend, Tina Humlick.
This plea comes just over three months after she was killed on October 5, 2023, in Placerville. El Dorado County Sheriff's Office Detective Katz oversaw the investigation while El Dorado County District Attorney's Office Deputy District Attorney Mike McCoy handled the prosecution of the case.
While nothing will bring Tina back to her family, this plea brings quick closure and resolution to the case. Murder cases typically take years to litigate and conclude with a lengthy trial.
Michael Thompson is set to be sentenced on March 4.
