A Nebraska inmate accused of strangling his cellmate may now be facing the death penalty.
Patrick Schroeder has plead guilty to the April killing of 22-year-old Terry Berry Junior at Tecumseh Prison.
Schroeder and Berry were sharing a cell for less than a week when Berry was killed.
Schroeder says he had grown intolerant of Berry's constant talking and strangled him with a towel.
Schroeder told a judge he wants to drop his legal challenges to the death penalty.
He is already serving a life sentence for killing a pawnee city farmer.
