Father, son admit accessory to murder

Authorities say 54-year-old Reinaldo Andino-Colon and 24-year-old Reinaldo Andino-Benitez each pleaded guilty Wednesday charges including accessory to murder after the fact.

Prosecutors say they paid another man to kill 32-year-old Alex Ortiz-Rivera of South Gate, Calif., so they could steal nine pounds of marijuana and $8,000 in cash he had in their home.

The Sentinel & Enterprise reports that the other man is awaiting trial.

Ortiz-Rivera was found dead Aug. 19, 2011, barefoot and without identification, his larynx punctured and crushed, in a sandpit near the Fitchburg Municipal Airport.
