BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) A man accused of killing a 4-year-old boy on an Indian reservation near Mount Pleasant has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Anthony Bennett pleaded guilty Tuesday in Bay City federal court. He admits killing his girlfriend's son Carnel Chamberlain while alone with the boy in June 2012. He also admits burning and burying the body.

A 10-page plea deal was filed in court. Bennett is facing decades in federal prison, but he can withdraw the guilty plea if his punishment exceeds 40 years.

The killing happened on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Reservation.
