A Rhinelander man pleads guilty to the April 2007 stabbing death of a Tomahawk woman.
Seth Louis admits stabbing Tracy Maurer because of a dispute over a computer he had sold her. Special prosecutor Ralph Uttke says he offered the plea to make sure he got a conviction and to find out exactly what happened the night of the murder.
Uttke says, as part of the plea, Louis agreed to testify against two Rhinelander women who are charged as accomplices in the murder.
Defense attorney Len Kachinsky says Louis accepted the plea knowing that he can also tell the truth about others involved in the crime. He says the evidence against him was strong, and he felt the others involved in the crime should also be punished.
Maurer's father Casey Grams is satisfied with the plea but still can't understand why Louis killed his daughter.
Louis will be sentenced to life in prison on January 14th. Prosecutors will recommend he be eligible for release on his 70th birthday.
