A man has pleaded guilty in a case that accuses him of stealing his father's body from a Detroit cemetery before it was buried.
Vincent Bright faces sentencing Sept. 24 in Wayne County Circuit Court for the crime of disinterring a body.
Police say the then-48-year-old stole the body of 93-year-old Clarence Bright from Gethsemane Cemetery on Jan. 14 and stored it in a home freezer, hoping for a resurrection.
Disinterment carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.
