PAWHUSKA, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma man has admitted in court to the 2015 slaying of a man whose body was found on an oil lease.

Jeremy Keith Reece, of Pawhuska, admitted on Thursday that he shot and burned Rick Holt, leaving him in a shallow grave in Osage County. The Tulsa World reports that, pending judicial approval of the plea deal, Reece will receive a 45-year federal prison sentence.

Reece was charged on November 25th with second-degree murder. As part of the plea deal, prosecutors will drop charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and kidnapping charges that have been pending against him since 2015.
