DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Kent County man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter in the death of his 19-year-old girlfriend.

Twenty-one-year-old Tony Mozick Jr. of Leipsic was sentenced to 15 years in prison immediately after he entered the plea Thursday in Kent County Superior Court.

Nineteen-year-old Taylor M. Owens‘ burned body was found in a wooded area in Leipsic on Sept. 7, 2013.

Prosecutors say that during a fight with Mozick in their home on Aug. 31, Owens fell, hit her head and was fatally injured. Authorities say moved the body to the wooded area where he tried to hid the remains by burning them.
