---- — BLOOMFIELD, Ind. (AP) — The second of two men who pleaded guilty to abducting and killing a teenager in rural southwestern Indiana is scheduled to learn his sentence from a judge.

The sentencing hearing for 27-year-old Jordan Buskirk of Jasonville is set for today in a Greene County court in Bloomfield. Buskirk has pleaded guilty to murder, criminal confinement and other charges in the June 2013 death of 19-year-old Katelyn Wolfe of Linton.

Wolfe’s body was found dumped in a rural lake five days after she was last being seen in her hometown about 30 miles southeast of Terre Haute.

Twenty-six-year-old Randal Crosley of Jasonville has been sentenced to 81 years in prison for his role in Wolfe’s death.
