BOSTON (AP) - A member of the New England Mafia has pleaded guilty to charges he lied to authorities investigating the 1993 slaying of a Boston nightclub owner.

Robert DeLuca entered guilty pleas on Friday to one count of obstruction of justice and two counts of making false statements. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 1.

Steven DiSarro’s remains were discovered this year behind a Providence, Rhode Island, mill owned by a mob associate.

DeLuca told investigators he helped former mob boss Francis “Cadillac Frank” Salemme (sah-LEHM’-ee) dispose of DiSarro’s body. Salemme and another man have pleaded not guilty in DiSarro’s killing.

A plea agreement says DeLuca also intends to plead guilty in state court in Rhode Island to conspiracy to commit murder in the killing of mob enforcer Kevin Hanrahan in 1992.
