Kyle Parker has pleaded guilty to killing 1-year-old Shaylyn Ammerman.
He changed his plea in a Friday hearing at Owen Circuit Court to charges of Murder and Kidnapping, a Level 3 Felony.
Sentencing is set for February 27th. Prosecutors originally said that they planned to seek life without parole.
Shaylyn Ammerman was reported missing form her home last March.
One day later, the 1 year old was found dead form asphyxiation.
Parker, 22, was arrested soon after, charged with murder, rape, child molestation, and several other charges.
