MUSKEGON, MICH. - Christopher Howard, 18, entered a guilty plea in an open murder charge for the killing of a pregnant woman in Muskegon Township in 2015.
Howard admitted he's the person who killed 21-year-old Dominique O'Neal on Monday, Oct. 30. He broke in to O'Neal's apartment -- investigators found his fingerprints and a palm print outside of the apartment.
On Tuesday, Oct. 31, a judge heard testimony on the case to determine whether Howard is guilty of first- or second-degree murder.
First-degree murder would mean Howard would get life in prison, without the possibility of parole.
