(FORT WAYNE) - An Indiana man has pleaded guilty to killing a 9-year-old girl three days before Christmas and dismembering her body.

Thirty-nine-year-old Michael Plumadore also pleaded guilty Friday to abuse of a corpse and removing a dead body from the scene in the Dec. 22 death of Aliahna Maroney-Lemmon at a Fort Wayne trailer park.

Plumadore's pleas mean prosecutors won't pursue the death penalty in his case. He'll be sentenced June 18 to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Police found the girl's dismembered body in trash bags. Her head, hands and feet were found in the freezer inside Plumadore's mobile home.

Plumadore was looking after Aliahna and her 6-year-old sisters because their mother was sick. He had been a trusted family friend who had looked after Aliahna's dying grandfather.
