IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho man pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the Nov. 8 murder of his fiancee.

The Post Register reports (http://bit.ly/2uhOp6A ) Jeremy White changed his plea Thursday from not guilty to guilty during a court hearing.

Judge Bruce Pickett asked White why he was changing his plea.

White said he "willingly strangled" his fiancee knowing it would take her life from her.

The terms of the plea agreement are White will serve 15 to 45 years in prison but he first must tell investigators what happened the night he admittedly killed his fiancee, Christin Caldwell.

White is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 20.

Court records show Caldwell's body was found with ligature marks on her neck after her body was exhumed Nov. 10.
