A Wamego man was found guilty of killing a man whose body was found on a Pottawatomie Co. river bank on Christmas Eve.

Cody Lamia-Beck pleaded no contest to second degree murder Friday morning, Pottawatomie Co. Attorney Sherri Schuck says. His sentencing is set July 19.

Lamia-Beck was arrested on March 6th in connection with the death of Jacob Bouck. The 19-year-old Bouck was missing for several days before his body was discovered on December 24 near the Kansas River, about a mile west of Wamego.

A coroner's report showed he died from a slash wound and two stab wounds to his neck and multiple contusions, Schuck said.

She also noted Lamia-Beck confessed to killing Bouck in an interview with investigators and what he said matched where Bouck's body was found and how he died and added that Lamia-Beck's DNA was found on a knife at the scene.
