WINONA COUNTY, Minn. (WEAU) -- A Minnesota man pleaded guilty to second degree murder in the death of his girlfriend.

Winona County Attorney Karin Sonneman announced Kyle Allers entered a plea November 15 in Winona County District Court to second degree murder for the death of Tasha Hanson in May 2016.

Under the plea agreement, the State at sentencing will be asking for Allers to receive an executed sentence of 360 months in prison. Allers will be asking for 330 months in prison as part of the plea agreement.

According to a criminal complaint, Allers told a family member that he had gotten into a fight with Hanson in May of 2016 and when asked if he had killed her, he said yes.

The complaint says Allers asked the family member to help hide her body. The family member eventually called law enforcement.

Sentencing is scheduled for January 11, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.
