Maurice Brown, 32, pleaded guilty on Wednesday in the murder of his girlfriend, Doris E. Schobel in July of 2013. 

He has been sentenced to life in prison with a chance of parole at 37.5 years. 

Police say that on July 13, Brown walked into the Metal Fabricating Plant on Berea Road and shot 29-year-old Doris Schobel four times. He was arrested four hours later. 

A police report showed it happened after Schobel had a long argument on the phone with someone. She had also filed police complaints about Brown in the days and weeks before the homicide.

Brown has a criminal record that includes felonious assault, burglary and stalking. 

At the time of the arrest, Brown was already wanted on two separate warrants for failing to appear at felony arraignments. He also pleaded guilty to those indictments on Wednesday, including kidnapping, felonious assault and domestic violence.
