NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) – Suspected serial killer William Clyde Gibson changed his plea from not guilty to guilty Thursday in advance of the second of his three murder trials.
The second case involves the 2002 murder of Karen Hodella, whose body was found in the Ohio River.
After his arrest for killing his mother's best friend, Christine Whitis, in April 2012 Gibson implicated himself in Hodella's death.
The guilty plea comes with a plea agreement promising a 65-year sentence for Hodella's death. Formal sentencing is expected April 17, 2014.
Gibson currently is on death row for Whitis' murder.
He still faces a June trial for the murder of 35-year-old Stephanie Kirk, whose remains were found in Gibson's backyard.
In the courtroom Thursday, our reporter confirmed Gibson has a new tattoo reading "DEATH ROW X 3" on the back of his head.
The judge ordered Gibson to not shave his head before or during the trial for Stephanie Kirk's murder so the tattoo will not influence that jury.
