WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Canadian man who was found last year in Michigan with a 12-year-old Kansas girl he met on the Internet has admitted his intent was to have sex with the girl.

Twenty-one-year-old Stewart Kenneth Cody McGill, of Bewdley, Ontario, pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct. Sentencing is April 24.

Under the plea deal, the parties are asking the judge to impose an eight-year prison sentence.

Authorities say McGill traveled in May 2012 to El Dorado to meet the girl. They were found a few days later near Potterville, Mich.

The girl told authorities at the time she went with McGill willingly. Prosecutors say McGill told police he met the girl playing "World of Warcraft" online and loved her.
