A Springfield man, who is serving a life sentence for a 2015 murder has now pleaded guilty to a second murder.

According to the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office, 37-year-old Prentiss Rashan Hare pleaded guilty to one count each of aggravated murder, gross abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence. 

Investigators said human remains were found in Greene County May 2016 and was later identified as Tiffany Chambers.

Hare admitted to police he killed Chambers in 2015 because she witnessed the murder of Michael Frazier in Jacksonville, Florida.

Prosecutors said Hare did not admit to killing Frazier in 2015.

Hare was convicted of murder in December 2016 and later sentenced to 26 years-to-life in prison.

According to the prosecutor’s office, prosecutors spoke with the families of Chambers and Frazier before the plea deal and all agreed on a sentence of life and Hare would not be eligible for parole for at least 34 years.

In a news conference Friday,  prosecutors said Hare will serve these sentences at the same time and will not be eligible for parole until at least January 2051. Hare will be 70 years old at that time.
