A Morehead City man accused of dumping a former roommate's body along a highway in West Virginia has pleaded no contest.
Erick Deickman of Morehead City faces up to five years in prison after entering his plea Tuesday in Cabell County. Assistant prosecutor Sean Hammers says a sentencing date hasn't been set.
Deickman was charged with concealing the body of 62-year-old Andrew Raymond Mulvaney.
Mulvany's body was found in a sealed, industrial-sized garbage can along Interstate 64 near Milton in April 2009.
According to a criminal complaint, Deickman and Mulvany were friends and former roommates.
No charges have been filed in connection with Mulvany's death.
