FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) -- A 28-year-old man accused along with his girlfriend of kidnapping her one-year-old niece has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of obstructing justice.

Arthur John Hollins of Layton will be sentenced August first.

Police allege Hollins and 27-year-old Alisha Elaine Keddington kept the child for nearly 12 hours on May 16th, secreted away at the boyfriend's house. They were arrested when trying to leave his home with the child the next morning.

Officials said the child had no obvious injury and was in good health when police found her.

Keddington is charged with first-degree felony child kidnapping and has a hearing July eleventh.
