DELPHI, Ind. -- The owner of the property where two Delphi teens were found dead pleaded guilty on Monday to charges unrelated to the girls’ deaths.

Logan pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of being a habitual traffic violator. He will remain in jail until his sentencing later this month.

Logan is not facing any charges in connection with the girls’ disappearance or murders.
