HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A man has pleaded guilty to a capital murder charge in the murder of a Pearland woman.
Nicholas Michael Jean, 21, plead guilty Wednesday morning in open court. He is on trial for the death of Susana DeJesus, 37. Authorities say DeJesus was kidnapped outside her job at a shopping center in the Pearland area in February 2009. Her body was found inside a trailer near Reliant Stadium.
Jean and an alleged accomplice, Wallace Ledet, were also facing kidnapping charges.
Immediately after the plea in open court, the judge called for a break. Attorneys from both sides are meeting right now. The judge told Eyewitness News that the case will be addressed in open court Wednesday afternon. The jury was dismissed and told to come back on Thursday morning.
