TOLEDO, OHIO: An Ohio woman has pleaded guilty to murder in the slaying of her 18-month-old daughter, whose remains were found in a box three months after she was reported missing.

Angela Steinfurth entered a type of guilty plea to murder and obstructing justice under which she maintains her innocence but acknowledges prosecutors had enough evidence to convict her. Her plea deal calls for a life sentence with parole eligibility after 18 years.

Steinfurth appeared in a Toledo courtroom Tuesday. Her ex-boyfriend, Steven King II, also pleaded guilty Tuesday to aggravated murder and other counts.

King said he found the girl, Elaina Steinfurth, injured in June and tried to resuscitate her. He said he then smothered her and put her in a box. The box later was found in the rafters of a garage.
