CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire attorney general says one of three defendants in the disappearance and death of a Maine mother whose body was found in a ski area pond last year will plead guilty.
Attorney General Michael Delaney says Anthony Papile of Ossippee will enter a plea and be sentenced Thursday.
Papile is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 20-year-old Krista Dittmeyer of Portland, Maine, whose car was found idling in a ski area parking lot in April 2011 with her 14-month-old child unharmed inside.
Dittmeyer's body was found four days later.
Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young would not say what charge Papile would plead to.
Papile's lawyer would not discuss the charge but said he expects the case to be resolved on Thursday.
