A man has pleaded guilty in Harrison County Court in connection to the death of a West Union man.

Clayton Collins pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and concealment of a body Tuesday in the death of Thomas Blankenship.

Collins and William Murray beat Blankenship with a wrench in January 2012 and buried his body in Barbour County.

A jury convicted Murray last month for his part.

Collins will be sentenced in September.
