HOLLY HILL, Fla. (AP) - A central Florida man who lived for weeks with a decomposing body in his house is heading to prison.

Todd LaDuke pleaded no contest to charges of failing to report a death and child neglect on Wednesday and was sentenced to five years in prison.

LaDuke, his girlfriend and their three children were found living in a Holly Hill home with the body of Tiffany Kain.

Police say they found the body on Halloween 2013. 

According to WESH (http://bit.ly/1vSRu8f ), LaDuke never told anyone about the death and were using her Social Security benefits and food stamps.
