LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania doctor has admitted in court to moving a York man’s dead body after the two had sex in the doctor’s home in September.

Lancaster Newspapers (https://bit.ly/1hi9Z8L) said 48-year-old Dr. John Yelcick pleaded guilty Wednesday in Lancaster County Court to misdemeanor counts of abuse of a corpse and evidence tampering.

The charges stem from his actions on Sept. 13, when 45-year-old David Sellers died at Yelcick’s Manheim Township home.

Police said Yelcick put the body in Sellers’ car, drove it to York and left it there with Sellers inside.

Sellers’ body was found four days later. Tests determined he died from a drug overdose.

Yelcick was chairman of the pathology department at Lancaster General Hospital. He said Wednesday that he lost his job and surrendered his medical license.
