One of two men accused of killing a 19-year-old southwestern Indiana woman and dumping her body in a lake in a rural lake has pleaded guilty in the case.

Under a deal with prosecutors, 26-year-old Jordan Buskirk of Jasonville pleaded guilty Tuesday in Greene Superior Court to charges of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit rape and criminal confinement in the death of Katelyn Wolfe of Linton.

Authorities say Wolfe was reported missing by her father on June 6, a day after she was last seen in Linton, about 30 miles southeast of Terre Haute. Her body was found four days later in a rural lake.

Buskirk has agreed to testify in the May trial of 25-year-old co-defendant Randal Crosley of Jasonville.
