PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania man waited until ten jurors had been chosen for his murder trial before deciding to plead no contest to homicide and related offenses.

Fifty-eight-year-old George Biegenwald apologized in Allegheny County court on Tuesday before he was sentenced to 20 to 40 years in prison, saying “I wish it never happened, but it did.”

Authorities said 50-year-old Donna See died after her head struck a dresser in his Glenshaw home in August, and Biegenwald stuffed her body in a basement refrigerator and later buried her behind his house.

Biegenwald also pleaded no contest to abuse of a corpse, evidence-tampering and aggravated assault in a case involving another woman that authorities said occurred while See’s body was in his refrigerator. An attempted homicide count in that case was dropped.
