The Associated Press this morning is reporting that a man and his wife have pleaded guilty in the death of a Michigan man whose body was found in an empty grain storage barn in Putnam County earlier this month.
Robert Strauss of Toledo pleaded guilty to murder on Monday and was sentenced to life in prison. His wife, Desirae Strauss, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, for which she will serve 15 years behind bars.
Both were charged in July with killing 52-year-old Brian Martin, who had been missing since June.
Martin’s remains were found after an anonymous tip provided new information to prosecutors.
