An Isabella County man has admitted to killing a young mother.

John White, 55, who was the victim's neighbor, has plead guilty in the 2012 murder of 24-year-old Rebekah Gay.

Gay was killed outside her Mount Pleasant home, wrapped in plastic, and dumped in a ditch along the side of a road back in October.

White then went back inside the house and helped Gay's 3-year-old son dress up for Halloween.

He entered a second-degree murder plea Thursday in Mount Pleasant. White was originally charged with first-degree murder.

White is an ex-convict who settled outside Mount Pleasant and became pastor of a tiny church, Christ Community Fellowship. He confessed to killing 24-year-old Rebekah Gay as part of a sexual fantasy.

He is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison after he's sentenced April 18.

Count on TV5 and for continuing coverage on air and online.
