LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County man has been convicted of tampering with evidence for his role in the murder of a Russian immigrant.

Ermek Abdildaev was given a two year sentence contingent upon his cooperation with the continued investigation into the murder of Aleksander Alverov.

Alverov is believed to have been killed in 2000.  His body was discovered in Hamilton Township in 2007.  Due to the exposure of the body, it was difficult to determine the identity of the victim. An advanced technological search done by the Hamilton Township Police Department and BCI revealed that the body was Alverov early in 2009.

Hamilton Township has an unnamed suspect that they are still investigating as the possible murderer.
