ALBION, Indiana — A Fort Wayne man has pleaded guilty to charges in the death of a woman whose body was found in a northeastern Indiana lake more than three years ago.

Gonzalez was arrested in March for the death of 36-year-old Erin Justin of Fort Wayne. A fisherman found her body weighted with a cinder block in Bartley Lake near Albion in July 2011.

The News Sun reports ( ) Gonzalez admitted in court Thursday to killing Justin during a physical attack and moving her body to Noble County. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 2.
