97-7 Country WGLR

The man from East Dubuque accused

of killing his step-daughter has pled

guilty in Jo Davies County Court to all

charges against him in connection with

her death.

Thursday was scheduled to be a status

hearing, but instead 41-year-old Terry Abbas

pled guilty to the six criminal counts

against him in the death of 14-year-old

Chyenne Kircher of East Dubuque.

Police say he raped and murdered her

back in August of 2011, and then buried

her body behind the home he shared

with Kircher, her mother and brother.

Abbas will be sentenced December 6th.
