A plea deal has been reached in the murder of a teenager who went missing back in 2006.
William Denmark pleaded guilty to second-degree murder Monday in Calhoun County Circuit Court. Denmark is accused of murdering David Beach. Beach's body has never been found, but troopers found a bullet and evidence that a body had been buried near Arnoldsburg.
Denmark was arrested last May in connection with the murder. He faces up to 10 years in prison, but he will be given credit for two-plus years already served. Denmark will be sentenced next month.
