OMAK — In a surprise move, an Omak man pleaded guilty Wednesday to the first-degree premeditated murder of a 59-year-old woman who was bludgeoned to death and then dumped on a remote road in October 2011. Benjamin R. Bridges, 46, was scheduled to go to trial in Okanogan County Superior Court next week for killing Vickey Lee Harvey, a former Omak cheerleader and homecoming queen who went on to raise her family in the Omak area.
