— Kenneth White of Durham pleaded guilty Tuesday to first-degree murder for the fatal shooting death of his pregnant girlfriend.

Orange County sheriff's deputies found the body of Ebony Chatell Robinson, 21, along Wrenn Road, not far from the Durham County line on Dec. 7, 2007. She had been shot and was found lying in leaves along the dirt road.

Orange authorities quickly identified White, of 4020 Sudbury Road, as a suspect. He was arrested the next day.

Investigators said White had threatened Robinson when he found out she was pregnant.
