Indiana man pleads guilty in girlfriend’s death in Minnesota
VIRGINIA, Minn. (AP) — An Indiana man has pleaded guilty to killing his girlfriend whose body was found in a shallow grave in northern Minnesota last year.
Forty-year-old Daniel Lynn of South Bend, Indiana, pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree murder without intent while committing a felony, according to online court records.
Lynn was charged in the death of 28-year-old Christina Woods, also of South Bend. Woods’ remains were discovered last July on property owned by a family member of Lynn’s near Cook, about 100 miles (161 kilometers) north of Duluth.
Investigators found a fire pit on the property that included metal buttons from jeans and a necklace. Woods’ body was found, wrapped and bound, in a fresh grave.
Lynn was captured in a campground near Edwardsburg, Michigan. Sentencing is set for Feb. 25.
