A man has pleaded guilty to third degree murder in the death of his girlfriend in Pottstown, Montgomery County.
Authorities say Carrero strangled 31-year-old Alicia Schmidt at her house in the 400 block of Cherry Street in February of last year.
They say Carrero then called his ex-wife and admitted to choking Schmidt while Schmidt's two children were upstairs.
The children weren't hurt.
Carrero was arrested a few days later in Florida.
Sentencing has not yet been scheduled.
