Elmira man admits guilt in frying pan slaying
ELMIRA, N.Y. (AP) - A 37-year-old Elmira man has admitted to killing another man by hitting him in the head with a frying pan three years ago.
Local media outlets report that Robert Storms of Elmira pleaded guilty Tuesday in Chemung County Court to second-degree murder charges in the death of 53-year-old Douglas Hubbard.
Storms told authorities he hit Hubbard with the frying pan after the two got into a fight inside Hubbard's Elmira apartment in the spring of 2009. Storms then disposed of the body in the neighboring town of Big Flats. The body hasn't been found.
As part of his plea deal with prosecutors, Storms has agreed to show police where he dumped Hubbard's body.
Storms faces a 10-year prison term when he's sentenced in late August.
