MONTROSE, Pa. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty in the stabbing death of a friend whose body was found down a snowy northeastern Pennsylvania embankment earlier this year.

Twenty-five-year-old Jerry Mast of Hallstead pleaded guilty Friday in Susquehanna County Court to third-degree murder and conspiracy in the February death of 26-year-old Roy Marvin Jr.

A state game commission employee found Marvin’s body in February in Great Bend Township near the New York border. Authorities said he had been stabbed 29 times on a remote stretch of road and then his body was dumped 100 feet down the embankment along the Susquehanna River

Mast is expected to testify in the February trial of his girlfriend, 27-year-old Sarah Briggs, who is charged with second-degree murder. Her attorney didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment Sunday.
