The cousin of accused murderer, Jeffery Willis, has pleaded guilty to two charges of lying to police.

Investigators say Kevin Bluhm lied to them during their investigation into the disappearance of Jessica Heeringa.

He was in court to enter his plea on Friday, Aug. 26, 2016.

Bluhm is accused of first telling a detective, "Jeffery Willis did do it," in reference to killing Jessica, and that he helped take care of her body. At a later date, he told police he made the story up.

Willis is charged with killing Rebekah Bletsh in 2014 and trying to kidnap a 16-year-old girl earlier this year.

Blum will be sentenced later this month.
