GENESEO, N.Y. (AP) - A 44-year-old woman has pleaded guilty in the slaying of a woman whose burned body was found alongside a rural upstate New York road last year.

WHEC-TV in Rochester reports (https://bit.ly/2juOQpW ) that Livingston County prosecutors say Mary Neverett pleaded guilty earlier this week to first-degree manslaughter in the death of Patrice Miller.

In July 2016, Neverett and 36-year-old Aykut Ozkaynak were charged with second-degree murder after Miller’s body was found along a dirt road in the town of Caledonia, 20 miles (32 kilometers) southwest of Rochester. Authorities say Miller’s body had been set on fire.
