DURHAM, N.C. -- On Friday, a Mebane man who was found with a woman’s bones in his backpack in 2008 is expected to enter a plea deal.

Michael Dorman was charged with killing Lakeia Boxley after Boxley’s bones were found in his backpack.

Dorman claimed he simply found the bones.

During a hearing on Friday, Dorman is expected to plead guilty to a lesser charge as opposed to murder.

The hearing is taking place in Durham County where Boxley lived at the time.
