Jason Jensen reached a plea agreement with Clay County prosecutors in the death of a North Dakota man. Troy Yarbrough's remains were found buried on Jensen's farm in Hitterdal. Jensen's lawyer told the court it was co-defendant Kayla Westcott who actually killed Yarbrough. Her case is pending after she was ordered to have a mental health examination.
