TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- A man convicted of killing a Seaman High School graduate will not try to take back his guilty plea.

Dustin Leftwich was due in court on Thursday. He initially had filed a motion to withdraw his plea to Capital Murder and six other counts for the murder of Brenna Mogart.

Shawnee Co. Asst. District Attorney Lee McGowen said Leftwich's withdrawal motion means he will live with his life sentence in Lansing with no possibility of parole.

Prosecutors say Leftwich hit Morgart with his car while she was jogging, put her in his trunk, and dumped her body in a field three miles away.
