The ex-boyfriend of an Anna Maria Island hotel owner has pleaded no contest to charges he murdered her after an argument.
William Cumber will get 20 years in prison but he must also tell authorities what happened to Sabine Musil-Buehler and where her body is.
Searchers are looking off 81st Street on Holmes Beach for the body of the one-time Haley’s Motel owner Thursday.
But development since Musil-Buehler’s 2008 disappearance has them wondering if they will ever find her remains.
Cumber’s plea deal comes weeks before his trial for her slaying was to begin.
Cumber is currently in prison for violating probation on a separate arson conviction.
