Officials: Former Sunday school teacher pleaded guilty to murder

TRACY, CA (WKOW) -- A former Sunday school teacher pleaded guilty to murder Monday in the death of an 8-year-old girl.

Court officials say Melissa Huckaby was charged with kidnapping, murder and rape in the death of Sandra Cantu, who was a friend of her daughter.

Sandra's body was found in 2009 in a suitcase submerged in a pond on a dairy farm.

Huckaby is expected to be sentenced June 14.

The girl was last seen alive in the mobile park where she lived with her family in Tracy, California -- the same mobile park where Huckaby lived with her 5-year-old daughter.
