FAIRBANKS- A Fairbanks man has pleaded guilty to killing his estranged girlfriend and hiding her body.

Nyrobbie Chandler pleaded guilty Wednesday to second-degree murder and evidence tampering in the death of Kaylynn Bishop

He is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 4 and 5 and faces 35 to 75 years in prison.

Assistant District Attorney Corrine Vorenkamp describes Chandler as a jealous boyfriend who had been banned from the bar where Bishop worked as a waitress because he confronted male customers.

Vorenkamp says Bishop was trying to end the relationship and was planning to move out of the home they shared.

Prosecutors say Chandler strangled Bishop, hid her body in a wooded area near North Pole and impersonated her after her death with text messages.
