EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The manager of an Everett halfway house has pleaded guilty to killing a 30-year-old resident of the house out of sexual desire.

The Daily Herald reports (https://goo.gl/dRdWB2 ) that 40-year-old Kenny Jermain Tate entered a guilty plea Wednesday to first-degree murder with a deadly weapon in connection with the death of Daniel Dubeau.

Court documents say Tate used a belt to strangle Dubeau after the younger man denied his sexual advances. Dubeau’s body was discovered in Tate’s room Dec. 2.

The documents say Tate sexually assaulted the victim after the killing.

Tate’s attorney, Natalie Tarantino, says her client pleaded guilty because of his “deep regret” for the incident.

Tate, who doesn’t have any prior felony convictions, faces more than 30 years in prison when he’s sentenced next month.
