GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder and tampering with evidence.

In exchange for Andrew Hudson's plea Monday afternoon in the death of Ana Carrillo, perjury charges against him were dropped.

Perjury charges against his mother Nancy DeCamp, father Lyle Hudson and his father's girlfriend Angela Wilson were also dismissed, according to the Kent County Prosecutor's Office.  A tampering with evidence charge against Wilson was dropped as well.

Carrillo had been missing for more than 2 months when her remains were found Nov. 9.

Authorities say Hudson led police to her body, which was buried on property owned by DeCamp in the area of Maguire Avenue and 3 Mile Road in Grand Rapids Township.

Carrillo's death certificate says she died at his home on Colby Avenue SW in Wyoming.  In court Monday, Hudson admitted that he stabbed Carrillo in the throat.

With his plea, Hudson could face a minimum of 40 years behind bars when he is sentenced.
