Ulisa Mary Chavers, the Louisa County woman accused of hiding her boyfriend's body in a well entered a guilty plea in court Wednesday morning.

Chavers pleaded guilty to concealing a dead body, credit card fraud, identity fraud, and possessing a sawed-off rifle.

Reginal Cody Bowles' body was found in March of 2009, more than two years after he disappeared. The cause of death has not been determined.
