BOISE -- A 22-year-old Nampa woman has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of a man who whose body was found underneath his Garden City house last fall.

Jordan Marie Shaver admitted she shot 49-year-old Brian Barton Geddes in the back of the head on Oct. 16, 2012, then hid his body in the crawlspace under his home.

Prosecutors say she lived in the home, drove his cars and spent his money for two weeks after the shooting before family members of the victim confronted her.

Garden City Police found his body wrapped in a tarp beneath the home on Nov. 2 and arrested Shaver that same day.

She was indicted by a grand jury on charges of robbery, grand theft, failure to report a death and use of a deadly weapon in commission of crime. A jury trial set for February has been vacated.

Prosecutors agreed to drop the other charges in exchange for the guilty plea to second-degree murder.  They plan to recommend Shaver serve at least 20 years of a life sentence.

Sentencing is set for March 21 at 9 a.m. before District Judge Timothy Hansen.
