RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - One of two men accused of being accessories in the alleged murder-for-hire of a Rapid City woman last year has pleaded guilty.

Twenty-nine-year-old Garland Brown is accused of moving the body of 22-year-old Jessica Rehfeld after she was killed. He pleaded guilty Thursday and faces up to five years in prison when he’s sentenced Aug. 25.

Authorities say Rehfeld was stabbed to death in May 2015. Her body was found in a remote grave near Rockerville last month.

Twenty-four-year-old Michael Frye faces the same charge as Brown. He has pleaded not guilty.

Three other people face first-degree murder charges in the case, including Rehfeld’s ex-boyfriend, Jonathan Klinetobe. They’ve all pleaded not guilty.
