Late Tuesday night and into Wednesday, police were busy recovering human remains from a hay field.
Police believe they are the remains of Douglas Hubbard who has been missing since 2009. Elmira police were led to the scene by Robert Storms, the man who killed Hubbard, and agreed to tell police where he hid the body as part of a plea agreement. Storms agreed to plead guilty to first degree manslaughter with a ten year prison sentence. He said he hit Hubbard over the head with a frying pan during an argument, which ended up killing him.
The District Attorney says conditions like Storms and Hubbard being the only witnesses, and being unable to recover a body, led to the plea agreement.
The remains have been taken to the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office to be identified. The DA says Storms will be sentenced on August 17th.
