<![CDATA[BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (AP) -- One of the men charged with killing a 19-year-old woman whose body was dumped in a rural southwestern Indiana lake has agreed to plead guilty to murder charges. The plea agreement for 26-year-old Jordan Buskirk has him admitting to charges of murder, rape and criminal confinement in the death of Katelyn Wolfe of Linton. The agreement was filed Tuesday in Greene County Superior Court. Wolfe was reported missing by her father on June 6, a day after she had last been seen in Linton, about 30 miles south of Terre Haute, according to authorities. Her body was found four days later in a rural lake tied to a 20-pound anchor weight. Greene County Prosecutor Jarrod Holtsclaw said Buskirk's attorney approached him with the plea agreement offer last week and that he got the support of Wolfe's family before making a decision. "We discussed it and I asked them to let me know whether they would like to accept the offer or go to trial," Holtsclaw told the Greene County Daily World (http://bit.ly/IfpPHW ). A judge has scheduled a Dec. 3 hearing to consider approving the plea agreement, which Holtsclaw said calls for Buskirk to face a prison term of at least 51 years. The Associated Press left a phone message seeking comment Wednesday at the office of Buskirk's defense attorney, Jacob Fish. Buskirk and Randal Crosley, 25, both of Jasonville, were arrested after Wolfe's body was found, with police saying they tried to keep investigators off their tracks by using the her cellphone to post an update on her Facebook account hinting that she was being followed by "creeps." Buskirk told investigators he and Crosley had discussed raping and killing a stranger, saying it "was just something that popped into their heads," according to court documents. Authorities say Buskirk told investigators that he and Crosley picked up Wolfe, to whom they had previously sold some Valium pills, near her Linton home. They fatally choked Wolfe along a Greene County road, then placed her body in the trunk of Buskirk's car and drove around getting high before arriving at the lake, court documents said. Crosley has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to face trial in March on murder charges. A phone message was left Wednesday for his defense attorney, Alan Baughman.
