A man has pleaded guilty to concealing the body of a real estate agent who disappeared two years ago while showing a property in a remote area outside the northwestern Arizona city of Kingman.

The Mohave Daily News reports that William Glen Sanders entered his plea in Superior Court on Friday.

The newspaper reported that the 55-year-old had also been charged with tampering with physical evidence, a charge that was dismissed.

Deputy Mohave County Attorney Bob Moon has asked the judge to delay Sanders' sentencing until after the May trial of Alfredo Gerardo Blanco, his co-defendant.

Blanco is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Sidney Cranston Jr. who went missing around June 2015. Cranston's remains were discovered Jan. 7, 2017, buried on a remote property east of Kingman.
