    A man has pleaded guilty to charges he killed a Massachusetts woman and buried her body behind a vacant home in Rhode Island.

    Attorney General Peter Kilmartin said Wednesday 33-year-old James Lombardi, of Cranston, Rhode Island waived indictment.

    Lombardi was charged with first-degree murder in the killing of 29-year-old Krystal Boswell, of Fall River. He was sentenced to life in prison, plus two years as a habitual offender.

    Police say he killed Boswell at his home in April, then brought her body to a Cranston home where he did construction work.
