PERU, Ind. (AP) _ A Mississippi man arrested in 2012 after DNA testing linked him to an Indiana woman's 1992 slaying has pleaded guilty in her death.
 
Fifty-four-year-old Timothy J. Jimerson of D'Iberville, Miss., pleaded guilty Thursday to voluntary manslaughter with a deadly weapon in the strangulation death of 27-year-old Toni Spicer.
 
A Miami County Circuit Court judge will decide March 20 whether he's accepted Jimerson's plea and a proposed 30-year sentence.
 
The Kokomo Tribune reports Spicer's body was found in her Kokomo mobile home by her two children, then aged 9 and 7, and a friend in August 1992.
 
Jimerson was arrested in October 2012 after DNA testing linked him to Spicer's killing.
 
A probable cause affidavit says Jimerson followed Spicer home from a bar the night she was slain.
