The man who pleaded guilty in the cold case murder of 11-year-old Jodie Parrack is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday, Jan. 11.

Daniel Furlong pleaded guilty in November of 2015 to second-degree murder.

Parrack’s body was found on November 8th, 2007, in Constantine Township Cemetery in St. Joseph County near the Indiana-Michigan state line.

She had been strangled.

DNA taken after Furlong was arrested in a separate sexual assault case matched evidence found on Jodi.

He faces up to life in prison.
