A man accused of killing an Indiana woman nearly two years ago has entered a guilty plea after striking a deal with prosecutors.
The Star Press reports Anthony Emerson Dailey pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter as part of an agreement that calls for him to receive a 25-year prison term.
Dailey was charged with murder in the death of 22-year-old Kirsten Sidwell. Her remains were found partially enclosed in a suitcase north of New Castle, a city nearly 45 miles northeast of Indianapolis. A pathologist ruled Sidwell had been strangled.
Dailey was arrested a few days after the body's discovery. Testimony at a December 2015 hearing indicated an envelope with Dailey's name on it was recovered from the suitcase.
Judge Kit Crane accepted the guilty plea. Sentencing is scheduled for April 19.
