ST. JOHN'S, Antigua (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to killing a woman from the San Francisco Bay Area in Antigua as she made a stopover in the Caribbean island for her sister's wedding.

Tishara Daniel made no statement as he entered his plea Wednesday to a charge of murder in the death of 29-year-old Nina Nilssen.

The Director of Public Prosecutions has not said what sentence he will seek when the 27-year-old Daniel is scheduled to be sentenced on July 5.

Nilssen was a graduate student at San Francisco State University when she and family members stopped during a Caribbean cruise in Antigua in January 2010 for the wedding of her sister. She was stabbed to death while going for a stroll near Pigeon Point Beach along the island's south coast.
