Aaron Graser, 39, has pleaded guilty in Connecticut to having sex with his dead girlfriend.
He has been sentenced to a year in prison for fourth-degree sexual assault of a corpse, and violation of probation.
The case started back in January, when police were called to his home and found the dead woman surrounded by heroin and needles.
He told police that he knew the woman hated having sex with him, so thought she might might wake up if he had sex with her.
