An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to raping and killing a 9-year-old girl who was strangled and found in a trash bin at the trailer park where they lived.

Jerrod Metsker pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges including aggravated murder. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole...

Prosecutors say they agreed to a plea deal that will keep Metsker in prison for the rest of his life after the girl’s parents decided they didn’t want to pursue the death penalty.

A small bit of justice for the loss of a beautiful girl.

The results would likely have been the same, or even less punishment with a trial. Sooo, I'm glad the family doesn't have to sit through the torture.

I can live with this verdict. Spares the family the horror and uncertainty of trial and keeps this man from being a danger to anyone else.

Thank you for the updates

RIP Reann. Your murderer will never see the light of day again. You are another of the angel I will always keep in my heart.
