Greensburg man pleads to missing man's murder in 1990s


GREENSBURG, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A Greensburg man has pleaded guilty to killing his sister's then-boyfriend sometime in the early 1990s.

Westmoreland County prosecutors said Curtis Eutsey was killed sometime between April 1990, when he was last seen, and November 1992. That's when Eutsey's ex-girlfriend claimed her brother, 44-year-old Robert Daniels, had told her he killed Eutsey.

Daniels later blamed the killing on his brother, who has never been charged in the crime, then confessed to police two years ago after DNA identified Eutsey's remains found in a wooded area.

According to Channel 11’s news exchange partners at TribLIVE, Daniels pleaded guilty Monday because he feared a life sentence had he been convicted at trial.

By pleading guilty to third-degree murder, he'll face a maximum sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison.
