Jordan Buskirk Admits to Killing Katelyn Wolfe

As part of a plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit rape, and criminal confinement.
One of the two men accused of killing a Greene County teenager and then dumping her body in a Sullivan County lake last June pleaded guilty to murder and three other felony counts in connection to the case Tuesday. 

Jordan Buskirk admitted in court Tuesday that he killed 19-year old Katelyn Wolfe in the early hours of June 6, 2013. 
   
As part of a plea agreement, he pleaded guilty to murder, conspiracy to commit murder, conspiracy to commit rape, and criminal confinement.
   
Buskirk also agreed to testify against co-defendant Randal Crosley.
   
Sentencing for Buskirk will not take place until after Crosley's case goes to trial in May of 2014.

Three of his sentences will run concurrent.

It is up to the judge to decide if his sentence for conspiracy to commit rape will run concurrent or consecutive to the other three.
   
Before accepting the plea agreement, Greene County Prosecutor Jarrod Hotsclaw discussed the issue with the family of Katelyn Wolfe.

"I think the biggest thing is they wanted to hear at some point Mr. Buskirk take responsibility and explain exactly what happened and why it happened, and there will come a day where they will hear that as well," Hotsclaw said.

No charges were dismissed or changed as part of the plea agreement.
   
It's now under the advisory of Greene County Judge Dena Martin.
   
The agreement will not be formally accepted until Buskirk's sentencing hearing.
   
No date for that hearing has been set.
