COQUILLE -- A man accused of helping an attempt to cover up a homicide in Coos Bay last year pleaded guilty Friday in Coos County Circuit Court.

Robert Allan Gordon, 58, was sentenced to 8 days in jail and 18 months probation on a single count of second-degree abuse of a corpse, a Class C felony.

The state dismissed a second charge of tampering with physical evidence.

Gordon, whose Coos Bay apartment was the scene of the beating death of Jesse Hayes in February 2013, was charged with helping George Ivanoff, Michael Gertson and Jesse Longhenry conceal and move Hayes' body from the building.

Gordon was arrested in Idaho in April on Coos Bay Police Department warrants and waived extradition.

The other three men had pleaded guilty to various degrees of manslaughter and are currently serving prison sentences.
