Delaware state prosecutors say a Newark man pleaded guilty to stabbing his girlfriend to death on a school bus she was driving. Jermease Ross was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Elizabeth Ware.

Because he pleaded guilty, prosecutors say they won't seek the death penalty or pursue a weapons charge.

Police say Ware was stabbed 14 times May 2 after Ross somehow got on her bus and attacked before she picked up any children. They had one child together.

A sentencing date was not set.
