ALLIANCE, Neb. - A Nebraska woman admitted helping hide the body of a Denver man months before her boyfriend, who told police he killed the man, died in an armed standoff.
Rose Siefke, 20, pleaded guilty Friday to being an accessory to a felony in the death of 38-year-old Joshua Bullock of Denver.
Siefke's trial was scheduled to begin Monday, but she agreed to plead to the reduced charge after a judge ruled that some of what she told investigators couldn't be used.
Prosecutors say Siefke helped her boyfriend, Andres Gonzalez, hide Bullock’s body in December 2011.
Gonzalez was killed last June after a day-long standoff with police in Alliance where he wounded three officers. Before his death, Gonzalez told police he had killed Bullock and buried the body in Dawes County.
