A man and woman who authorities say buried the man's infant son in a shallow grave in southern Michigan have pleaded guilty in the case.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports 25-year-old Timothy Young and 22-year-old Brittani Hill pleaded guilty to concealing the death by burying the child at a Jackson County home they were living in and then digging him up and reburying him at another area home.

The child's body was discovered in July. Hill and Young moved to Dayton, Ohio, where they were arrested.

WLNS-TV reports sentencing is Jan. 12 following Tuesday's pleas. Hill and Young told authorities Young found the baby dead in a crib. He was on probation and decided to bury him.

Hill's attorney, Jared Hopkins, says it was "a bad mistake."
