Marcus Bebb Jones pleads guilty
In a long, drawn-out case, Marcus Bebb-Jones finally entered a plea in Garfield County court Friday morning.
According to officials with Garfield County, Bebb-Jones plead guilty to 2nd Degree Murder in the 1997 death of his wife Sabrina.
He was facing charges of Murder in the First Degree, Concealing Death and Domestic Violence.
The jury trial has been vacated and the D.A.'s office filed written confirmation for a plea offer.
Bebb-Jones' sentencing hearing will be on May, 1 at 8:30 a.m.
Sabrina's skull was discovered in 2004 in a remote wooded area on Douglas Pass in the northwest part of Garfield County.
In November 2010, Bebb-Jones was taken into custody by authorities in London. It followed an extensive 12-year investigation involving several law enforcement agencies.
He ran a hotel in Grand Junction with his wife before her disappearance in 1997.
Shortly after her disappearance, Bebb-Jones ran off to Las Vegas on a spending spree. Authorities say he also never reported his wife's disappearance.
