GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- A Mesa County woman pleads guilty to stealing the identity of a man who was strangled to death in Orchard Mesa.

Sadie Camis appeared in a Mesa County Justice Center courtroom for her plea hearing Wednesday afternoon.

She pleaded guilty to identity theft and tampering with evidence in the case of Rigoberto Luna, whose body was left on Oct. 22, 2012 near B ½ and 29 ¾ roads.

Camis was originally arrested on two first-degree murder counts, but those charges were dropped as part of her plea agreement.

After Luna's body was discovered, cameras showed people using the dead man's credit cards at various ATMs in the area.

Two men -- Nathan Dennis and Aaron Ungles -- were also arrested in the case. They pleaded guilty to Luna's murder.

Camis will be sentenced on July 29, and the two men be sentenced on July 25.
