TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

A Tucson man who admitted sealing a murder victim up in a bathroom could be facing a long prison sentence.

Pima County prosecutors say 23-year-old Jorge Osorio Diaz pleaded guilty Thursday to burglary and hindering prosecution.

He will be sentenced March 29 and faces anywhere from probation to up to 10 years in prison.

The Arizona Daily Star says Diaz's friend Jonathan Baumbach killed 61-year-old Robert Pardee in June 2011.

Diaz admitted that he used tape to seal Pardee up in a bathroom in an attempt to keep the smell at bay.

Authorities say Diaz and the 28-year-old Baumbach stole the victim's credit cards, truck and other personal belongings.

Baumbach pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and kidnapping and was sentenced to 31 years in prison earlier this week.
