Three women have pleaded guilty to preventing the lawful and decent burial of a farmer.
Geoffrey Sturdey was aged 60 when he was last seen alive in October 2008 at his farm in Tregaron, Ceredigion.
His body was discovered by police in 2012 following 'concern' from the Department of Work & Pensions.
His widow Rebekah Sturdey, 56, originally from Iran; admitted conspiring to covering up the death and carrying out the burial.
Mr Sturdey's carer Boque Ore Adie, 43, originally from South Africa; and Karmel Adie, 24, also pleaded guilty to the same charges.
The prosecution accepted a not guilty plea from Boqer-Ore Adie's daughter Hazel Adie, 20.
Sturdey and Boqer-Ore Adie admitted fraud by failing to notify authorities they were in receipt of disability allowance and pension credits in the farmer's name.The court heard Sturdey and Boqer-Ore Adie had claimed £21,700 in disability allowance and £36,000 in pension credits.
Boqer-Ore Adie claimed a further £9,400 in carer's allowance and £10,100 in income support for Mr Sturdey.
