A Westmont man accused of strangling his estranged wife on their daughter's 5th birthday is likely to plead guilty, his attorney said in court Thursday.

Ian Alamilla, 35, faces first-degree murder charges in the April 10, 2010, slaying of his wife Tara, 34. Assistant Public Defender Mike Mara told a DuPage County judge Thursday that Alamilla was considering pleading guilty and is "likely" to do so at a future court date.

The case was continued to Sept. 29.
