KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - A Kingman man who confessed to authorities that the body they found buried in the backyard of his former home was a friend he killed has asked to represent himself as he pleads guilty.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports (https://bit.ly/2bF4SJA ) that 63-year-old Richard Polaski on Wednesday told a judge that he would like to represent himself and enter a plea of guilty in connection to the killing of 65-year-old John Holland. His next hearing has been set for Sept. 20.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s office las week recovered Holland’s body from beneath concrete and dirt in the backyard of Polaski’s home.

Authorities said Polaski confessed to a homicide while speaking with police in Laughlin, Nevada, and that he then told investigators he gained access to Holland’s investment account after killing Holland in 2015.
