LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The man charged with murdering a Sullivan University student took a plea deal Monday afternoon and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Gregory O'Bryan faced murder, sodomy, corpse abuse, and evidence tampering charges in the October 2010 death of 18-year-old Andrew Compton.

Compton was a first-year culinary student.

Andrew Compton's mother read a statement and addressed O'Bryan in court on Monday.  She struggled to get through her statement.

Homicide detectives, 50 police recruits, and three cadaver dogs searched an Indiana landfill for Compton's body, but it's never been found.

O'Bryan initially told investigators Compton left his apartment after the two had sex.  When police returned with a search warrant, O'Bryan told detectives Compton died during sex and that he disposed of the body.
