Man convicted in death of Wichita toddler

A Wichita man has pleaded guilty to second degree murder in the death of his girlfriend's two-year-old son.

Anthony Bunn was found unresponsive in a home in May of 2018.

26-year-old Lucas Diel and the boy's mother, Elizabeth Woolheater, were arreseted.

The District Attorney's Office says Diel entered into a plea agreement Monday.

Under that agreement, Diel pleaded guilty to second degree murder and is expected to serve 584 months (nearly 49 years) in prison when he is sentenced on June 25.

The DA's Office says that sentence is based on Diel's criminal history.

Woolheater is scheduled for a motions hearing later this month.
