PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland man has pleaded guilty to killing his wife and dumping her body near a summer camp in Sandy last year.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Martin Gallo-Gallardo pleaded guilty Monday in Clackamas County Circuit Court to killing Coral Rodrigues-Lorenzo.

Gallo-Gallardo was charged in October 2018 with killing his wife and dumping her body at Camp Namanu.

A camp employee found the body of Rodriguez-Lorenzo in a ditch Oct. 28.

Police say the day after his wife’s body was found, Gallo-Gallardo confessed to killing her in an interview with detectives.

Gallo-Gallardo’s next court hearing is Sept. 24.
