Stephan Dietrich has admitted to killing his wife Seble Dietrich.

On Thursday, Dietrich pleaded guilty to second degree murder in a Guelph court room. 

Dietrich's wife, who was also known as "Mimi," was the subject of a nearly year-long police search before Guelph homicide investigators discovered her remains in 2015.

Police said her remains were found inside the home she shared with her husband and three children on Vancouver Street.

Mimi was well known within the local Ethiopian community as a bubbly, outgoing person with a beautiful singing voice.

Dietrich was arrested and originally charged with first degree murder in June 2015.

Dietrich's sentencing is set for Nov. 22.
