Man enters plea in exchange for a term of life in prison.

A landscaper has entered a guilty plea after being accused of murdering a client.

Jury selection was under way Tuesday for Michael Nadeau, 50, who prosecutors said was linked by DNA to the 2002 murder of 79-year-old Kathleen White of Irving.

Nadeau entered the plea in exchange for a term of life in prison, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Investigators said White was strangled with electrical cord during a robbery attempt. Her dog was also killed in the attack and was found hanging in the shower.

Nadeau was arrested last year at a homeless shelter in El Paso.
