SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 37-year-old Ogden man has pleaded guilty to murder in the 2011 death of his girlfriend’s baby.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1fjazmW) Jeremy David Marshall pleaded to the reduced charge last week. He originally faced an aggravated murder count in the death of 3-month-old Kennedy Lucille “Baby K” Marshall.

The girl was taken to the hospital with a head injury on Dec. 14, 2011, and died later that day.

Court documents show Marshall told authorities he hit the girl’s head on the side of the crib while he was taking care of her. But officials say he later had a conversation with his mother and said he “murdered somebody.”

Marshall faces up to life in prison at sentencing July 2.
