    A Massachusetts man has pleaded guilty to lying to police looking into the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy who was later found dead.

    The Telegram & Gazette reports that 25-year-old Christian Sierra was handed a 2-year suspended jail sentence on Tuesday after pleading guilty to perjury and misleading investigators probing the September 2013 disappearance of Jeremiah Oliver, of Fitchburg. Jeremiah's body was found in a suitcase off Interstate 190 in Sterling in April 2014.

    Sierra is the brother of Alberto Sierra, who was the boyfriend of Jeremiah's mother, Elsa Oliver.
