    Prosecutors say a man has admitted to helping cover up the killing of a woman who was found dead with her fiancée at a Massachusetts home.

    The Essex district attorney's office says 45-year-old Michael Hebb pleaded guilty Wednesday in Salem to accessory after the fact in connection with the February deaths of 37-year-old Mark Greenlaw and 40-year-old Jennifer O'Connor.

    Authorities say the victims' bodies were found inside a Peabody home. Greenlaw had been shot in the head while O'Connor had been stabbed.

    They say Hebb tried to destroy the evidence of O'Connor's death.

    Prosecutors allege co-defendant Wes Doughty killed the couple shortly after they moved in because he thought Greenlaw was going to cut in on his drug business. They say he also sexually assaulted O'Connor. Doughty has pleaded not guilty.
