GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Two men linked to a 2013 homicide have entered guilty pleas.

In December 2013, Steven Day was found dead in the snow along 16 Mile Road east of Cedar Springs. He had been strangled.

Robert McCombs, 63, and Roger Musick, 38, were accused of moving Day’s body after his death and charged with tampering with evidence.

Monday, McCombs pleaded guilty to tampering with evidence and being a third-time habitual offender. As part of a plea agreement, other charges against him were dismissed and he agreed to testify against Musick.

Musick also entered a guilty plea to tampering with evidence.

Both could spend 10 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for March 3.

Both are suspects in the murder, though neither currently faces a murder charge. Authorities say they conspired to kill Day because he admitted to molesting a child about 35 years ago.
