KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - A Kingman man who is accused of killing his friend and then burying him in his backyard has pleaded guilty.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/2dITc9P ) that 63-year-old Richard Polaski on Monday pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of second-degree murder in the death of John Holland. If the judge accepts the plea, Polaski will face 10 to 18 years in state prison.

Polaski confessed to the killing on July 16 to Mohave County sheriff’s officials. He told authorities he stabbed Holland to death and then buried the body in his backyard. He previously asked to plead guilty in the killing.

Mohave County Superior Court Judge Lee Jantzen is scheduled to rule on the plea on Nov. 21.
