OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — UPDATE 4/28/2022 1:41 p.m.

An Omaha man, 40-year-old Marvin Young, who has long been a suspect in the 2018 disappearance of his live-in girlfriend entered a plea of no contest to manslaughter and other counts in the woman's presumed death on March 1.

The Douglas County Attorney's Office confirmed that Young was sentenced in the District Court of Douglas County on Thursday morning.

The Omaha World-Herald reports that 40-year-old Marvin Young entered the pleas Tuesday and faces up to 33 years in prison for the death of Camisha Hollis, who was also the mother of the couple's three young daughters.

Hollis was last seen alive in the early-morning house of April 2, 2018, but reported missing later that day when her mother couldn't reach her.

Police have said Young had a history of abusing Hollis and that the couple's oldest daughter reported hearing a struggle between her parents before her mother disappeared.
