A 21-year-old man has pleaded guilty to stabbing his former girlfriend 39 times inside her Lackawanna home.

Tequila Suter was killed inside her home on Wilkesbarre in Lackawanna this past February. Prosecutors used neighborhood video and surveillance footage, cell phone tower analysis and DNA evidence to link the crime to Damoni Hall.

Hall pleaded guilty Monday to second degree murder. He faces up to life in prison when he is sentenced in January.
