A Wichita man has pleaded guilty to charges in the murder of his girlfriend last year.

38-year-old Travis Becker, Jr appeared before Sedgwick County district judge Kevin O’Connor Friday and pleaded guilty to first degree felony murder and aggravated kidnapping.  Becker will be sentenced on January 2nd.

The body of 42-year-old Perla Rodriguez was found in her home in the 2200 block of North Parkridge on November 14, 2017 after Andover police found some property belonging to her and contacted Wichita authorities.   Her car was later found in Olathe, and Becker was arrested in that city a short time later.    Police said Rodriguez died from blunt force trauma.
