The stepmother of a 13-year-old boy whose body was buried at a mobile home park will plead guilty in the case and help Indiana prosecutors.

Christian Choate was found buried in a Gary mobile home park.

Prosecutors say he endured a life of beatings, abuse and was often placed in a dog cage.

In exchange for leniency, Kimberly Leona Kubina will testify against her ex-husband, Christian's father.

Riley Choate has pleaded not guilty.
