In this undated photo provided by the Isabella County, Mich., Sheriffs Department, Rebekah Gay is shown. John D. White, a central Michigan pastor accused of beating and strangling Gay to fulfill a sexual fantasy was engaged to the Gay's mother, says Donna Houghton, a longtime member of Christ Community Fellowship, near Mount Pleasant. White was arraigned Thursday, Nov. 1, 2012 on first-degree murder charges. White told investigators he repeatedly struck Gay's head with a mallet then strangled her with a zip tie at her mobile home. He said he stripped her but does not remember if he carried out his fantasy of having sex with Gay's dead body. (AP Photo/Isabella County Sheriffs Department) Photo by
