ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) -

A northwest Missouri man pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of a woman whose body was left in a box on a rural road.

Martin Williams, 51, also pleaded guilty Monday to abandonment of a corpse in the death of 35-year-old Tangela Ann Fisher of St. Joseph.

Her body was found on a rural Platte County road in mid-September.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports Williams told the court Fisher died after overdosing on meth. He and 31-year-old Juan Naranjo stashed her body for two days before dumping it.

Williams will be sentenced in February.

Naranjo pleaded guilty last week to hindering prosecution of a felony and possession of a controlled substance. He also is being held for illegally entering the country and is likely to be deported.
