In accordance with plea agreement the sentences will be left to the discretion of the court and both men are facing up to 85 years in prison if they receive the maximum sentence.

Buskirk told police the two men tied Wolfe up with a rope and attached the 20-pound weight to her body before dragging her down a hill and throwing her in a rural Sullivan County lake.
