Two teenagers pleaded guilty today to a charge in connection with the recent death of a Marquette man.

Police say they learned that Beaudry and Garrow had been with Dowling the night before he was found dead on his front porch. The two were accused of failing to summon medical help while Dowling was having a medical emergency and of not reporting his death.

One felony charge for each of them of concealing the death of an individual was dismissed.

Dowling’s toxicology reports are still pending, and the investigation into his death is ongoing.
