MT. PLEASANT (WKZO) -- A twisted killer from Kalamazoo is finally going to prison and will never be free to kill again.  Rebekah Gay trusted John White as a family friend and their pastor, but she had no idea that White had been obsessing about murdering the pretty 24-year old, after seeing computer porn sites about having sex with the dead. 

Last Halloween, he used a zip tie to strangle her, and then dumped her nude body in a ditch.

Yesterday in Isabella County Circuit Court, the 55-year-old White entered a guilty plea to second degree murder and to being a habitual offender and will get no less than 45.8 years in prison.

White spent time in prison for two previous crimes. One involved stabbing a 17-year old girl from Battle Creek in 1981 and the second was the killing of a woman from Galesburg in 1995.

This time he will be over 100-years-old before he will be eligible for parole.
