A Peach Springs man has pleaded guilty to negligent homicide in the death of a friend who was abandoned at a cemetery in 100-degree heat.
The Kingman Daily Miner reports (http://bit.ly/VFjZ6A) that 50-year-old Roland Cook was deemed the most responsible of an intoxicated group of four who left 39-year-old Darlene Sinyella at the cemetery near Truxton in June 2011.
Sinyella suffered from diabetes, walked with a cane and was legally blind.
A crew later found Sinyella's body at the cemetery.
Cook could face up to eight years in prison.
Cook was the driver of a caravan of friends and admitted the group downed half a bottle of vodka on the way to the cemetery.
Three others were charged with abuse of a vulnerable adult.
Two have entered into plea agreements.
