Roslund, 17, was reported missing to the Hastings Police Department on Sept. 21, 2021. His body was found in a shallow grave a month later.

Police arrested Gilmore on charges of murder and concealing the death of an individual. As part of the plea deal, the charge of concealing the death of an individual has been dropped.

Barry County Prosecutor Julie Nakfoor Pratt said in a statement to FOX 17 that her office is asking for a sentence of life with no possibility of parole.
