FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A 42-year-old North Pole resident suspected of shooting an Anchorage man to death last year at a North Pole home has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://bit.ly/2928fH2) reports Matthew Burton Davis entered the plea Thursday in Fairbanks Superior Court in the death of 34-year-old John Adam Chilcote.

Chilcote was staying with a woman at the North Pole home on Feb. 9, 2015.

Prosecutors say Davis that day sent text messages to the woman, threatening to kill Chilcote.

Prosecutors say Davis that night broke into the home and shot Chilcote with a handgun.

Davis summoned his brother afterward, said he had shot someone and turned himself into North Pole police.

A sentencing hearing is set for Nov. 28.
