MILFORD, Conn. (AP) - A West Haven woman has pleaded guilty to her role in the killing of man whose body was found after a July 4 explosion in Hamden.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/1nF4AEh) 30-year-old Natali Martinez-Sanchez pleaded guilty Thursday in Milford Superior Court to second-degree hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

She’s being held on $500,000 bond in federal prison in Rhode Island.

Prosecutors say Martinez-Sanchez destroyed and removed materials at the house where 39-year-old Edward Brooks, of West Haven, was killed.

Police allege Christopher Miller killed Brooks and then tried to blow up the body with a pipe bomb at West Rock State Park. Miller has pleaded not guilty to charges including murder.

Three others face charges in connection with Brooks’ slaying.

Martinez-Sanchez is scheduled to be sentenced April 7.
