NORFOLK, Neb. (KCAU) — A Norfolk woman has pleaded guilty Monday to improperly disposing of the body of an unborn baby.
Celeste Burgess, 18, pleaded guilty to removing/concealing/abandoning a dead human body via a plea agreement, according to court information. As part of the plea deal, her other charges, concealing the death of another person and false reporting, were dismissed.
