INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis man pleaded guilty Wednesday to murdering Angela Summers, a U.S. postal worker, in 2020.
According to court documents, Tony Cushingberry, 23, murdered Summers on April 27, 2020, while she was on her normal mail delivery route on North Denny Street. That’s northeast of downtown near the intersection of 30th Street and Sherman Drive.
Cushingberry was upset about a lack of mail being delivered to his home and was asking Summers about where it was. He later pushed Summers onto a neighbor’s porch when she pepper sprayed him. Cushingberry then pulled out a handgun and shot her in the chest. Court documents say he admitted to police that he was the one who shot her.
Cushingberry pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. He is scheduled to be sentenced at a later date and could face a maximum sentence of life in federal prison.
