FREMONT, OHIO (AP) — An Ohio man has pleaded guilty to killing a co-worker whose body was found in her car trunk nearly four years ago.

Daniel Myers pleaded guilty to aggravated murder and other charges Wednesday in a deal that allowed him to avoid the death penalty. 

A Sandusky County judge sentenced him to life in prison with no chance of parole. Myers declined to comment during the hearing. 

Authorities in April 2015 found the body of 28-year-old Heather Bogle in her car trunk at an apartment complex in Clyde. 

Investigators say that the Fremont woman was shot and beaten and went missing after leaving work at a plant where she and Myers worked.

Myers and Bogle worked on the same factory line at the Whirlpool plant in Clyde, Ohio.
