A Wayne county man pleads guilty to the murder of a 9- year-old neighbor. 24-year-old Jerrod Metsker entered the plea in Wayne County Common Pleas Court Wednesday morning. The judge automatically sentenced him to life in prison. ReAnn Murphy disappeared from her home at the Smithville Mobile Home Park on December 14th. The little girl's body was found one day later in a trash bin. Metsker admits he killed her... pleading guilty to charges of rape, kidnapping and aggravated murder. Had a jury convicted him, he could have been sentenced to death.
