JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — A Jackson man has pleaded guilty in the fatal stabbing of his aunt.

Jackson police say 19-year-old Caleb Mullins pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder, theft of property and tampering with evidence in the death of 43-year-old Karen Mullins. Sentencing is set for Nov. 18.

Mullins had been charged with first-degree murder after his arrest Nov. 12 in Louisville, Ky., where authorities say they found him with his aunt's sport utility vehicle.

Karen Mullins' body was found on the kitchen floor of her home in Jackson the day before the arrest. Authorities said she died of multiple stab wounds.

Investigators said they found a knife and bloody clothes during a search of a trash bin at apartments where the victim and her nephew formerly lived together.
